The Second Institute of Oceanography, State Oceanic Administration hosted SOOS for a week in May 2018. Annual meetings of the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) and Executive Committee (EXCOM) took place alongside the SOOS Data Management Sub-Committee (DMSC) meeting and a workshop focused on Southern Ocean Modelling.
A workshop on “Southern Ocean Modelling: Status and Observation Data Requirements” brought together the SOOS modelling and scientific community and enhanced collaboration with Chinese researchers. This workshop was well added with international and Chinese presenters and participants. The full workshop report is available here.
SOOS thanks SCAR, SCOR and the many Chinese sponsors, and our host Prof. Dake Chen for the significant organisational and financial support provided in hosting these meetings.
