The Southern Ocean, in the midst of climate change
90% of heat budget accumulated on Earth is located in the oceans. To understand this global warming phenomenon, we have to investigate oceans under their surface and in particular the Southern Ocean. This is the main objective of the SO-CHIC project. Started in 2019 and coordinated by Sorbonne Université (Paris, France), SO-CHIC (Southern Ocean – Carbon and Heat Impact on Climate) gathers 16 international partners and experts in physics, oceanography, climatology and biochemistry. Funded by the European Commission for 5 years, the project aims to understand and quantify key processes controlling heat and carbon fluxes between the atmosphere, ocean and… Read More
Atlantic Pole to Pole: Climate Science 2 Policy
Facilitating the science needed to support ocean governance and management. About this event Join our open event as part of All-Atlantic 2021, discussing what kind of research priorities should be taken into account in establishing a framework for international collaboration in the next decades? Date: 2nd June 2021, from 11:30 - 13:00 UTC The world faces global challenges that can only be met through science diplomacy, the use of scientific collaborations among nations to address common problems. Researchers, decision makers and knowledge brokers have a responsibility to develop and maintain the flow of information to create evidence-based and equitable outcomes… Read More

Establishment of the SO-CHIC Dissemination Board
The role of the SO-CHIC Dissemination Board is to support the project in gaining new ideas on how to efficiently engage with stakeholders, attract more users and identify ways to improve usage of data and information from society to science. The Dissemination Board will contribute to the evaluation of SO-CHIC dissemination and communication activities that informs updates to the Dissemination and Communication Plan and final report on dissemination and communication activities at the end of the project. The SO-CHIC Dissemination Board is composed of project partners EPB, ETT and SU. During the planned annual updates to the SO-CHIC Dissemination and… Read More
