Working Group meeting, and Ocean Sciences 2018

Our second full Working Group meeting will be held on Sunday 11 February, immediately preceding the AGU/ASLO Ocean Sciences meeting. Items for discussion include our survey of community needs for chemical speciation modelling programs, and progress in our funded project and the related experiments now being planned or carried out in several countries. A report on the Working Group meeting will be published on this site.

We have prepared a two page summary of WG 145 current activities and objectives which will be available at the exhibit booths of both SCOR and NSF’s Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry program. You are also welcome to download it from the link above.

New Associate Members

We are pleased to announce that the following scientists have become Associate Members of SCOR Working Group 145: Dr Regina Easley of the National Institute of Standards and Technology of the USA, Dr Daniela Stoica of the Laboratoire national de métrologie et d’essai, Paris (France); Dr Frank Bastkowski of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), Braunschweig (Germany); and Dr Igor Maksimov of the National Metrology Institute of Japan.

These associate members of the Working Group are either making new Harned Cell measurements that contribute to the development of the chemical speciation model (see an earlier 2017 post “Four institutions join the project”), or are engaged in projects that are very closely related to the aims of the Working Group. We are very grateful for their contributions, and those of their institutes.
