Baltic & Arctic Argo workshop: Save the date!

As part of the Euro-Argo RISE project, IO PAN & FMI will organise a Baltic and Arctic Argo workshop at IO PAN, Sopot, Poland, 23.-25.9.2020.

Join us to further the use of Argo floats and their data in the Baltic Sea and the Arctic Ocean!


Several countries around the Baltic Sea and the Arctic Ocean are not yet involved in the Argo activities. In order to allow new scientists to learn more and possibly engage in Argo through new collaborations, FMI & IOPAN are organising a dedicated "Baltic & Arctic Argo workshop" to be hold on September 23-25, 2020 in Sopot.

The workshop topics cover, but are not limited to

  • Baltic Argo activities
  • Arctic Argo activites
  • International collaboration in both regions
  • Operating Argo floats in shallow waters
  • Operating Argo floats in seasonally ice-covered sea
  • Recovering Argo floats
  • Sensors for core missions
  • Biogeochemical sensors
  • Quality Control
  • Where to find the data and how to use it
  • Legal aspects of using Argo floats in exclusive economic zones

We invite participants from the Baltic and Arctic communities, that are interested in using Argo data or engaging with Argo activities to join the workshop.

The first day of the workshop will focus on Baltic Sea specific issues, the second day will cover general Argo knowledge and the third day will focus on Arctic Sea specific issues.

More information about the workshop and details for registration and logistics will be provided in early 2020.
