A multidisciplinary workshop on "The Southern Ocean in the Weddell Sea and off Dronning Maud Land: unique oceanographic conditions shape circumpolar and global processes" is to be held by the Weddell Sea - Dronning Maud Land (WS-DML) regional working group of the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS).

The aims of the workshop are to:

  1. Provide an overview and update of scientific findings, which underline the WS-DML as an important area for multi-disciplinary and other studies (approx. 30 presentations and posters). It is also planned to publish a special volume on such results (see below).
  2. Inform the SOOS WS-DML community about the progress of activities in the area of interest.
  3. Develop ideas, actions and products for the future including multi-national initiatives in short presentations and in a plenary discussion following our "additional plans and requirements" assembled during our kick-off workshop in Tromsø, in January 2019.

We would like to bring together scientists, who recognize the role of research in the Weddell Sea / Dronning Maud Land in the circumpolar system due to its physical/biological uniqueness and function. Our focii are important single-disciplinary results embedded in a larger context and multidisciplinary studies. Experts are welcome to participate and contribute to the developments of this SOOS regional working group. We encourage especially early-career researchers and experts from countries with small and emerging Antarctic research programmes to attend the workshop.

Limited travel support is available for early-career researchers.

Full details on applying for travel funding, registering for the workshop, and the preliminary schedule are available in the Workshop Announcement.
