Setting the Scientific Baseline for the Ocean Decade with GOSR2020 | Ocean Decade Show!

May 6, 2021

Baselines: Where you are depends on where you begin

This month's episode of The Ocean Decade Show is all about baseline data! Dr. Salvatore Aricò from the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission helps us dive into the Global Ocean Science Report 2020 (GOSR2020). Based on data collected from around the world and co-authored by over 60 ocean science and sustainable development experts, GOSR2020 offers a holistic, global record of how, where and by whom ocean science is conducted. In order to know how the Ocean Decade makes a difference and if we've reached our goals, we have to know where we are today in terms of ocean science data, infrastructure, research, and funding.
