The 1st Workshop of the Southern Ocean Observing System (SOOS) West Antarctic Peninsula Regional Working Group (WAP WG) will be held at the Aurora Conference Centre, British Antarctic Survey, Cambridge, UK, 15-16 May 2017. It will focus on the development of the West Antarctic Peninsula Working Group, including building the community, identifying existing activities and observational gaps, aligning data efforts, and articulation of an action plan moving forward.
The aims of the workshop are to share information about the existing sustained observational programmes on the WAP and plans/aspirations for their futures, to discuss how a WAP component of SOOS might be constructed in the context of these activities, and how such a system might best be implemented and operated.
The workshop is sponsored by the British Antarctic Survey, SCAR and SOOS and is open to anyone interested in attending.
