30th session of the Data Buoy Cooperation panel
The 30th meeting of Data Buoy Cooperation Panel (DBCP), the International Coordination Group for the use of buoys to collect oceanographic and climatological data, was held from October 27 to 31 in China. DBCP is a joint body of the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) and IOC – UNESCO (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO).
This meeting brings together scientists and oceanographers from around the world as well as companies such as CLS, involved in space oceanography. This annual event aims to ensure the sustainability of the global network of buoys that can perform in-situ tests and collect vital information in the study of climates.
