At its 4-7 Sept. annual meeting, SCOR approved two new SCOR working groups: (1) WG 156 on Active Chlorophyll fluorescence for autonomous measurements of global marine primary productivity and (2) WG 157: MetaZooGene. Proposals are at https://scor-int.org/. events/scor-annual-meeting-2018/.
Two scientists currently involved in SCOR have been named as 2018 AGU Fellows: (1) Catherine Jeandel (GEOTRACES IPO Science Director) and Trevor McDougall (Nominated Member from Australia and former Chair of SCOR/IAPSO WG 127). Congratulations!
