SOOS Asian Workshop

Shanghai, China, 23-24 May 2013

The SOOS Scientific Steering Committee is convening a 2-day workshop to highlight Asian activities in Southern Ocean observations and research, and to stimulate discussion about enhanced involvement in SOOS from Asian countries.

The SOOS Asian Workshop will provide an opportunity to highlight research and observations being undertaken by Asian countries in the Southern Ocean and to stimulate discussion, and foster further involvement, from Asian countries in SOOS activities.

SOOS Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) members will also present an overview of their international activities in the Southern Ocean.
