SIBER Workshop - First Announcement
« on: December 17, 2005, 05:19:17 pm »
The 'Sustained Indian Ocean Biogeochemical and Ecological Research' (SIBER) Workshop will convene an international, interdisciplinary group of scientists at the National Institute of Oceanography in Goa, India (3-6 October, 2006) to:

1) Review the state of our knowledge and scientific understanding of the biogeochemical and ecological dynamics of the Indian Ocean in relation to physical oceanographic variability;
2) Identify prominent gaps in our understanding especially as they pertain to the role of physical and ecological processes in regulating biogeochemical cycles and the carbon cycle in particular; and
3) Formulate a plan for the implementation of a biogeochemical and ecological observational and modeling research program that leverages and substantially enhances the planned CLIVAR/GOOS Indian Ocean observing system.

The SIBER Workshop is designed to elicit maximum interaction among the participants.
