Frontiers in Ocean Observing

In this second supplement to Oceanography on frontiers in ocean observing, articles describe the many creative and promising ways in which scientists are now sampling and studying the ocean and its constituents. Once again, topics were chosen to align with the priorities of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021–2030). This  year’s themes include: Observations for Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal, Patterns and Trends in Ocean Biodiversity Under Climate Change, Assessing the Damage Caused by Marine Plastic Pollution,, Ocean Observations for Coastal Hazard Warning, and Environmental DNA Technology. We hope that you enjoy this supplement and share it widely.

Articles in this inaugural Frontiers in Ocean Observing supplement to Oceanography describe new technologies and reveal some exciting results that advance our understanding of the world ocean and its resources and support its sustainable use and management. Topics covered in the supplement align with the priorities of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021–2030) in the following areas: (1) Ocean-Climate Nexus, (2) Ecosystems and Their Diversity, (3) Ocean Resources and the Economy Under Changing Environmental Conditions, (4) Pollutants and Contaminants and Their Potential Impacts on Human Health and Ecosystems, and (5) Multi-Hazard Warning Systems. The sixth and closing chapter describes several exciting new ocean observing technologies. We hope that you enjoy this supplement and share it widely.
