1500 – 1600 - Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean
Presented by Prof Ed Hill OBE
For more than a decade, the Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans, POGO, has served as a forum for leaders of major oceanographic institutions around the world to promote global oceanography, particularly the implementation of international and integrated global ocean observing systems. POGO is an international network of collaborators who foster partnerships that advance efficiency and effectiveness in studying and monitoring the world’s oceans on a global scale. Through its efforts, POGO has promoted observations underpinning ocean and climate science, interpreted scientific results for decision makers, provided training and technology transfer to emerging economies, and built awareness of the many challenges still ahead.
This presentation will be given by Professor Ed Hill, Executive Director of the National Oceanography Centre and recent member of the POGO Executive Committee. It will afford you the opportunity to hear about the strategic priorities of POGO.
