This webinar "Sustaining in situ Ocean Observations for the Digital Ocean" built on the science presented in EMB's 9th Policy Brief on 'Sustaining in situ Ocean Observations for the Age of the Digital Ocean' which was launched on 16 June during the EMODnet Open Conference. The document was presented by co-author Prof. Edward Hill, and the PPT slides can be downloaded here.
