Establishing a Coordinated Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS)
Report of SCAR XXIX/COMNAP XVIII Workshop held on 15 July 2006 in Hobart, Tasmania
This workshop, held as an associated meeting during SCAR XXIX/COMNAP XVIII, brought together on an opportunistic basis a group of oceanographers, biologists and engineers, to examine the feasibility of establishing a Southern Ocean Observation System (SOOS) and in particular to investigate the possibility of incorporating data collected by marine mammals and seabirds. In reference to observation systems in the other oceans of the world, the importance of sustainable and coordinated observations was emphasized.
