Don't miss the just published special issue of Oceanography on Oceans Across the Solar System: @TOSOceanography

How can observations help to plan and verify marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (#mCDR)?
@TOSOceanography currently invites articles for the Oceanography supplement 👇

I’m co-editing topic 1 #oceanCDR with @TosteTanhua.
🏁Extended ...deadline for expression of interest: July 15!

Explore the geology, chemistry, biology, and archaeology of parts of the global ocean and seas in the just published "Ocean Exploration" supplement to Oceanography magazine @TOSOceanography.

Ph.D. candidates & recent postdocs, if you are interested in this Junior Fellows program please let me or my colleagues know (whoever aligns with your work). Fellows get lab space and a healthy research fund. It's very competitive but ...worth considering.

Don't miss this event next Wednesday! Achieving the Ocean We Want: Cross-Cutting Themes for the Ocean Decade via @theNASEM

Please consider contributing a two-pager on your research to the next @TOSOceanography supplement on Ocean Observing. Details here: Deadline is approaching!!

I'm honoured to speak Wed, 8 June on World Oceans Day at 14:30 UTC on a panel with Prof. James Watson of @sealab_osu on using data to address world issues.

I'm not an oceanographer anymore, but the training on data has been invaluable for... my work as a #climatejustice activist
