Nithiyaa Nilamani (Malaysia), 4th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World, 3-6 may 2016, Hobart, Australia

"My sincere thanks to the OA-ICC for making it possible for me to present my research at the 4th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World. During the symposium, there were exchange of many experiences, suggestions and opinions with experts that would be very beneficial for the advancement of OA study to the newbie countries like Malaysia. It also gave me an opportunity to make new friends, renew old acquaintances and discuss potential collaboration.”

Abed El Rahman HASSOUN (Lebanon), 3rd GOA-ON Science Workshop, 8-10 May 2016, Hobart, Australia

"OA-ICC [...] provided for me the opportunity to present my research work to the international ocean research community, to meet experts and colleagues from all over the world and discuss with them about my results, share ideas and build a strong network with peers for future scientific collaborations."

Data management expert meeting 2014

23-24 April 2014, IAEA Environment Laboratories, Monaco

The IAEA Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC) organized an expert meeting on the management of ocean acidification biological response data at the IAEA Environment Laboratories in Monaco, 23-24 April 2014. The meeting brought together ocean acidification scientists and data managers from 10 countries, with a common goal to work towards improved data management practices in order to enhance access, integration and inter-comparison of ocean acidification data and to foster global scientific collaboration.

The group agreed to develop the following products:

  • A revision of Chapter 15 of the Guide to Best Practices for Ocean Acidification Research and Data Reporting” (http://tinyurl.com/oaicc-data), in particular expanding on biological response data, including recommendations on a data management plan and data policy, common vocabulary and metadata;
  • Guidelines for data curators;
  • Guidelines for authors of scientific papers on ocean acidification biological response studies, with the goal to facilitate data archiving and comparability;
  • and a feasibility plan for a one-stop shop for ocean acidification data.
