Wednesday September 22, 2010

08:55-09:00 Announcements/ Introduction to the day’s activities
09:00-09:50 Plenary 2: Biogeochemical and ecological coupling or decoupling of the epiplagic and deep sea: regional to global implications (Richard Lampitt, NOC, Southampton)

10:05-11:30 Working Group discussions: Critical science directions for the ongoing OCB time series: scope, feedbacks, and direction
· What science questions must the OCB time series programs continue to address?
· What critical science questions are currently not being addressed or adequately resolved by the OCB time series programs? Are we missing key pools/rates? What are appropriate time and space scales necessary to resolve these questions?
· From a practical perspective can these questions be addressed?
· Is there need to integrate or network the on-going OCB time series efforts beyond the current level of interaction? Would such integration address unresolved science questions? What would the critical elements of this integration include?
11:30-12:30 Working group reports

13:30-14:20 Plenary 3: Autonomous platform time series (Ken Johnson, MBARI)

14:20-16:45 Working Group discussions: Coordination and implementation of novel sensing
technologies at ocean time series:
· Current and future science questions and motivations
· Available/emerging platforms & sensors to address these questions
· Explore technology challenges that need to be addressed
· Practical and workforce considerations
· Integrating shipboard, autonomous in situ, and satellite time series with models
· Extending time series to regional and global scales
16:45-18:00 Working group reports/discussion

Thursday September 23, 2010

08:55-0:900 Announcements/ introduction to the day’s activities
09:00-09:50 Plenary 4: Ocean-time series as windows into scales of variability in the sea (Francisco Chavez, MBARI)

10:05-12:30 Working Group discussions: Defining future ocean time-series science activities:
· What role do and can the ship-based time-series programs play in emerging ocean observing programs?
· What is the right balance between ship-based time-series, moorings, gliders, remote sensing, etc. for the future time-series?
· Data management and synthesis –can we use/improve existing data repositories to improve our view of ocean processes at the time series sites?

13:30-14:30 Working group reports/discussion
14:30-14:45 Concluding remarks (Matthew Church, UH)

14:45-18:00 Scoping workshop steering committee convenes to begin drafting workshop report
