7th Euro-Argo Science Meeting

The 7th Euro-Argo Science Meeting will be held on 22-23 October 2019 in Athens, Greece.

Aims of the meeting

  • To bring together users of Argo data and to provide an opportunity for high-level science interactions in link with Argo
  • To stimulate research activities using Argo data, especially in combination with other data types and in model studies
  • To highlight the new fields of research activities and applications allowed by the extensions of the core Argo programme to biogeochemistry, greater depths, and specific regions of interest (marginal seas, boundary currents, high latitudes)
  • To strengthen links with industry and foster Research and Development activities related to Argo
  • To allow users to widen their experience of the Euro-Argo community, welcome young scientists into that community, encourage their use of Argo data and provide an opportunity to participate in discussions of how Argo should evolve within Europe and globally.

Call for abstracts

Beware, the deadline for abstract submission is modified : 17 June 2019

The meeting will include sessions on all aspects of Argo science. The conveners invite submission of abstracts on topics including, but not limited to:

  • Argo data for operational oceanography (e.g. the Copernicus Marine Service) and seasonal to decadal climate prediction.
  • Synergies and complementarities with other in-situ and satellite observations
  • Heat and freshwater content, Earth energy budget and sea level variations
  • Inter-annual to decadal variability of water mass properties
  • Deep water formation and monitoring of the Meridional Overturning Circulation
  • Regional studies using Argo data
  • Contribution of Argo to high latitude research challenges
  • Biogeochemistry and carbon research.
  • Technological advances and results from pilot experiments.
  • Sensors development
  • Calibration/validation issues and advancements


Note: Limited travel support will be available to encourage early career scientists to attend the meeting. Allocation of the funds will be decided on rationale provided by the applicants.
