The Deep Ocean Observing Strategy, or DOOS is a Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) Project focused on the creation of a strategy or the development of a common statement of requirements and an initial strategy for sustained global deep ocean observations; considering all Essential Ocean Variables, regions, and technologies so as to extract high impact, feasibility, and GOOS fit-for-purpose actions for the next 5-10 years.
DOOS organizers are conducting a deep-ocean observation inventory to lay the foundation for development and coordination of regional, national, and global deep-ocean observing systems. They request your assistance by asking you to complete a brief online survey on the current use of, and needs for, deep ocean observations. Fine the link to the survey below.
An initial activity for DOOS in 2016 is to update and complete the DOOS Consultative Report; initially drafted in 2012. The Report is available for your review and comment.
