Direct observation of the ocean is still one of the pillars on which modern ocean sciences are built. From a technological and methodological point of view monitoring the ocean is an ever evolving field, with a growing interest on interdisciplinary observations.
This open session on observing the ocean has a twofold intent: to provide an opportunity to discuss instruments used to collect data in the ocean (i.e. common observational tools as well as innovative platforms and procedures) and to act as a forum to present ocean observations using a broad and interdisciplinary spectrum and range of scales.
The session is organized by early career scientists and, while it is directed to the whole scientific community, we strongly encourage contributions from young scientist. We welcome contributions from all fields in oceanography, from local to global and form macro to micro ocean scales.
