In order to achieve fully integrated biogeochemistry and ecosystems research across the entire food web, IMBER establishes collaborative activities with other projects and programmes so as to avoid unnecessary duplication and ensure that IMBER takes an interdisciplinary scientific approach.
Ocean Interface Projects
- Land-Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone (LOICZ)
- Surface Ocean – Lower Atmosphere Study (SOLAS)
- Variability and predictability of the ocean-atmosphere system (CLIVAR)
- Call for applications: Future Earth Engagement Committee, January 2014
- Final report of the Transition Team published, November 2013
- Future Earth Science Committee announced, June 2013
- The Science and Technology Alliance for Global Sustainability
IGBP Integration Projects
- Past Global Changes (PAGES) and International Marine Aspects of Global Change (IMAGES) in understanding physical and biogeochemical processes operating in the ocean on time scales longer than the period of instrumental records.
- Analysis, Integration and Modeling the Earth System (AIMES) to achieve a deeper and more quantitative understanding of the role of human perturbations to the Earth’s biogeochemical cycles and their interactions with the coupled physical climate system.
Earth System Science Partnership Programmes
- World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and Climate Variability and Prediction (CLIVAR) on the role of physical processes, particularly climate variability and change on marine biogeochemical cycles, ecosystems and their direct feedbacks on physics.
- International programme of biodiversity science (DIVERSITAS) on the impacts of biodiversity changes on marine biogeochemical cycles and ecosystems.
- International Human Dimensions Programme (IHDP) on integrating social science.
- Global Carbon Project (GCP) in the study of global carbon cycling.
- Global Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms (GEOHAB) on the effects of physical, chemical and biological conditions on phytoplankton population dynamics, with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
- GEOTRACES in the global study of trace elements and isotopes.
- International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP) in the observations of carbon cycling and storage in the ocean (with IOC and GCP).
Ocean Observation Programmes
- Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) to ensure effective collection and use of sustained observations.
- Argo programme: Argo is a global array of 3,000 free-drifting profiling floats that measures the temperature and salinity of the upper 2000 m of the ocean. This allows, for the first time, continuous monitoring of the temperature, salinity, and velocity of the upper ocean, with all data being relayed and made publicly available within hours after collection.
- The GMES Masters 2012 is set to begin with further partners and a prize pool worth over EUR 300,000.
- Ocean Monitoring and Forecasting (MyOcean) project
- World Ocean Observatory
- World Ocean Journal
- Ocean Acidification - an online resource bringing information on ocean acidification to scientists, policymakers and the public
- Strategic Plan for Federal Research and Monitoring of Ocean Acidification
- “Things you should know about ocean acidification” – a slide set for scientists introducing ocean acidification to a wider audience
- 20 facts about ocean acidification: available in French, Spanish and German
