From 23th to 25th November 2018, the Ocean Carbon from Space (SatCO2): Joint Science Workshop and Training (III) (hereinafter referred to as the SatCO2 workshop) was successfully held in Hangzhou. The SatCO2 workshop was co-sponsored by the State Key Laboratory of Satellite Ocean Environment Dynamics, Second Institute of Oceanography, Ministry of Natural Resources (hereinafter referred to as SOED) and Zhejiang Provincial Key Laboratory of Geographic Information Systems, Department of Earth Sciences, Zhejiang University; and co-organized by State Key Laboratory of Marine Environmental Science (Xiamen University), National Marine Environmental Monitoring Center, Key Laboratory of Space Ocean Remote Sensing and Application (National Satellite Ocean Application Service), and Ocean Remote Sensing Profession Committee (China Society for Oceanography); and specially funded by the Emergency Management Project of the National Natural Science Foundation of China. The workshop was co-chaired by Academician Pan Delu from the Second Institute of Oceanography, Ministry of Natural Resources and Professor Chen-Tung Arthur Chen from National Sun Yat-Sen University, Taiwan.
The workshop attracted more than 170 experts, scholars, and students from 61 organizations at home and abroad. This workshop was mainly based on the quantitative estimation of the marine carbon cycle, which has been widely discussed in recent years worldwide. It aimed to discuss the scientific issues of the marine carbon cycle, promote multidisciplinary research and cooperation in satellite remote sensing and marine science, and promote the application of remote sensing data in marine carbon cycling and ecological monitoring by combining researchers in marine chemistry, marine biology, ocean dynamics, and marine remote sensing.
The seminar was divided into four special topics, namely, the relationship between human activities and the marine carbon cycle, acidification, and global change; inversion and application of marine biogeochemical remote sensing; the impact of climate change and short-term oscillations on marine ecosystems; and multi-source remote sensing data application and ocean big data. The seminar included 12 invited reports, 19 special reports, poster presentations, and concentrative discussions. The participating scholars carried out comprehensive and in-depth discussion on the mechanisms, methods, applications, difficulties, and challenges of determining ocean carbon from space based on different research directions, perspectives, and aspects, thus building a good platform for interdisciplinary cooperation. The concentrative discussion was highly productive and included the opinions of young scholars and senior researchers, thus deepening the exchange between various disciplines and laying a solid foundation for further cooperation.
Before the workshop, the “Marine Satellite Data Online Analysis Platform” (“SatCO2 Platform”) was officially released, with participants the first to use the SatCO2 platform.
Bai Yan, the Deputy Director of the SOED, stated that ocean carbon from space is a multidisciplinary research direction. By uniting relevant technical organizations in China over the past 10 years, SOED has gradually made SatCO2 an academic platform for frontier achievements in marine remote sensing and provides datasets, data sharing, information visualization analysis, software system application, training courses, and cross-disciplinary research.
In December 2016 and 2017, two SatCO2 workshops and training courses were successfully held, with plans to hold such workshops each year. As such, researchers from all disciplines of oceanography are welcome to participate and to conduct in-depth marine cooperative research. At the same time, it is hoped that more scientific researchers and staff will share their ocean remote sensing observation data and services through the SatCO2 platform.
