Bringing together observational oceanographers and modelers across physical, biogeochemical, and ecological communities to assess our understanding of pathways connecting the surface to the seafloor and to develop recommendations for improved detection and attribution of change in the global deep ocean system.


The workshop welcomes the participation of scientists from fields across the ocean observing and modeling communities, spanning physics, biogeochemistry, and ecology. We welcome insights from highly localized to global-scale studies as well as efforts focused on individual disciplines, but we strongly encourage all participants to consider how their work can increase opportunities for other disciplines/communities to have a collective impact. 

We also encourage participation from relevant oceanographic networks and observing campaigns (e.g., Deep Argo, BGC Argo, GO-SHIP (Global Ocean Shipboard Hydrographic Investigations Program) and Bio-GO-SHIP, JETZON (Joint Exploration of the Twilight Zone Ocean Network), ECCO and ECCO-Darwin (Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean), DOSI (Deep Ocean Stewardship Initiative), Challenger-150, PICES (North Pacific Marine Science Organization) to ensure broad disciplinary representation and connectivity to established programs.

Student, postdoc, and early-career scientist participation is highly encouraged. Limited travel support is available for students, early career scientists (within 10 years of last degree), and scientists from underrepresented races/ethnicities. A short application form will be provided during registration.


This 2.5-day workshop will be hybrid, with both in-person and virtual participation options. The schedule will include plenary sessions, poster sessions, and breakout discussion sessions.
