SOUTHERN OCEAN OBSERVING SYSTEM
The Southern Ocean Observing System
(SOOS) is an international initiative of the
Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research
(SCOR) and the Scientific Committee on
Antarctic Research (SCAR). SOOS was
officially launched in August 2011 with the
opening of the International Project Office
(IPO), hosted by the Institute of Marine
and Antarctic Studies at the University
of Tasmania. Sponsorship of SOOS
and the IPO has now grown to over
15 international sponsors from eight
nations, and connects global science,
data, logistics, policy, governance and
industry communities working in the
Southern Ocean.
The SOOS’ mission is to facilitate the
collection and delivery of essential
observations on dynamics and change of
Southern Ocean systems to all international
stakeholders through design, advocacy
and implementation of cost-effective
observing and data-delivery systems.
Towards this mission, SOOS has developed
30
a number of networks and products, and
established several regional networks to
better coordinate national and international
collection of observations in different sectors
of the Southern Ocean. We have provided a
framework for development of communityled Working Groups that enhance our
observational capabilities. In collaboration
with a number of international communities,
we have developed a Database of
Upcoming Expeditions to the Southern
Ocean (DueSouth), to better support
collaboration in field planning. We have
identified hundreds of moorings deployed
in the Southern Ocean and are working to
make the data from these moorings openly
available. We have also delivered a data
discovery tool “SOOSmap” that supports
discovery of data by observational platform
type or variable. All of these products are
delivered through the SOOS website
(www.soos.aq) as contributions to the
5-Year Implementation Plan, which has now
been finalised and is openly available.
