A New Understanding of Ocean Life with the Ocean Biomolecular Observing Network | Ocean Decade Show

January 5, 2023

A Look at how Ocean Observing Drives the Ocean Decade!

Happy New Year, and happy 3rd official year of the Ocean Decade - and The Ocean Decade Show podcast. To kick off 2023, this month's episode features Taylor a bit out of her scientific depths discussing the Ocean Biomolecular Observing Network (OBON), an endorsed Ocean Decade Programme, which aims to develop a global system of biological observation that will allow science and society to understand ocean life like never before. Guests Dr. Sophie Seeyave - CEO of Partnership for Observation of the Global Ocean (POGO) - and Dr. Maragret Leinen - Director of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego - expertly guide Taylor through the importance of ocean observation, how OBON is building a global observation network, and what the Programme wants to achieve by 2030.
