Community White Papers 

Earlier this year, abstracts for Community White Papers (CWPs) were solicited from the ocean observing and end user communities. The organizers of OceanObs’19 requested abstracts with the hope they will evolve into overarching CWPs, becoming collectively reflective of community wisdoms and perspectives. The OceanObs’19 Program Committee has reviewed and consolidated approved abstracts with similar scopes to enhance the overarching vision of the final CWPs. Abstract author teams have been notified of their CWP groups, and have been provided with instructions on beginning the CWP writing process. The  full list of approved and consolidated CWP can be found below. 


The overarching vision of the final CWPs will focus on:

 (1) being forward-looking to the next decade

(2) addressing end-user engagement

(3) addressing opportunities for integration

(4) connecting to conference themes. 


CWPs will be published in a special issue of Frontiers in Marine Science prior to the conference in 2019.
