ODIP presented at the 2nd Blue Planet Symposium
The ODIP project has been presented at the 2nd Blue Planet Symposium which took place from 27 to 29 May 2015 in Cairns - Australia. "Oceans and Society: Blue Planet" is the over-arching Marine Task within the Group on Earth Observations (GEO). GEO is an intergovernmental body dedicated to the effective use of Earth observation (in situ or via remote sensing) for societal benefit. The creation of the Blue Planet Task was an initiative of the Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans (POGO) in 2011, to bring together all the existing ocean observation programmes within GEO, to add new ones to the GEO portfolio, and to create synergies between them. Blue Planet brings together many ocean observation programmes with a societal benefit angle. GEO is comprised of 97 member nations, the European Commission and 87 Participating Organizations, including POGO, GOOS and CEOS. The ODIP presentation was given by mr Roger Proctor (Australia) who is a member of the ODIP Community. The presentation can be found in the Promotion section.
