SIBER Workshop

SIBER Workshop

The SIBER Workshop convened an international, interdisciplinary group of scientists at the National Institute of Oceanography in Goa, India to:

  • 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;
  • 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;
  • 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.
