Could it be related to the red tide outbreak in Sabah? The high chlorophyll a water is extended far into the Spratly Island area.

IOCS Abstract Deadline

International Ocean Colour Science (IOCS) meeting - Abstract Deadline 15 March 2013

The first International Ocean Colour Science (IOCS) meeting will take place in the city of Darmstadt, Germany from 6 to 8 May 2013 (see http://iocs.ioccg.org). The deadline for abstract submission is 15 March 2013. Abstracts dealing with any aspect of remote sensing of ocean colour will be accepted (see http://iocs.ioccg.org/abstracts/submit-an-abstract/).

You are encouraged to register for the meeting as soon as possible. Registration is free but all participants must be registered in order to attend the meeting.

BOUSSOLE project manager

Project manager for BOUSSOLE

A project manager position is proposed (with a start as soon as possible;
ideally beginning
of May 2013) at the "Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche, LOV",
within the "Marine optics and remote sensing" group (see at
http://www.obs-vlfr.fr/LOV/OMT). Our group is
composed of 8 scientists, 9 engineers and a dozen of Post-Docs, Phds and
trainees. We are
embedded into the "Observatoire Océanologique de Villefranche"
(http://www.obs-vlfr.fr),
which employs about 180 total staff (60 researchers).
The proposed job develops within the "BOUSSOLE" project, whose main
goals are fundamental
bio-optics research and calibration/validation activities for satellite
ocean color sensors. The
project is centered on the development, deployment, and maintenance of a
deep-sea mooring
of a new type, precisely designed and dedicated to marine optics
measurements (inherent and
apparent optical properties), and on …
