3 Brief report on on-going activities

  1. Report on the CZCP Workshop: Paul DiGiacomo opened the report by stating that the Puerto Rico workshop was much closer to where we want to get than the previous two workshops. However, it still appears challenging to bring the end users in. The workshop facilitated very good discussions, and the challenge is in terms of the follow up. It appears difficult to identify tangible and measurable outcomes of the workshop. Having recommendations is good, but there is a need to have more follow up.

    Michael Bruno commented that this time, we did not have a parade of researchers. Rather there were on the one side contributions by people delivering products and explaining them, and on other side users describing how they are or would like to use these products. Among the participants, there was very good representation of the region, with good mix of users including the relevant industry. The workshop hit the nail on the head in terms of the theme.

    Hans-Peter Plag pointed out that there were considerable cultural differences between the individual workshops, and these differences need to be respected.

    Robert Christian asked what is needed in order to do to have successful observing systems. It was emphasized that bringing in users from the start is a key issue.

    Hans-Peter Plag reminded that many of the workshop participants expressed the need to be able to connect to experts when necessary. Paul DiGiacomo suggested that we set up a list with experts and their fields. This was received as a good idea.

    Action Item CZCP-CG-7-2: Hans-Peter Plag will set up a list of CZCP experts and will ask all members of the for information on what field(s) of expertize they would volunteer to be experts for. Responsible: Hans-Peter Plag, Deadline: 2011-05-31.

    Robert Christian informed that he heard about a network for science, which has been developed be a person from Harvard University. He suggested that it may be helpful to follow up on that.

    Action Item CZCP-CG-7-3: Robert Christian will send information of the network for science to Hans-Peter Plag for further follow up. Responsible: Robert Christian, Deadline: 2011-05-20.

  2. Formation of an Ocean CoP: Paul DiGiacomo had no further information on the progress. There was supposed to be a meeting soon. Jay Pearlman was most likely working on a NSF proposal.

    Action Item CZCP-CG-7-4: Paul DiGiacomo will contact Jay Pearlman to get more information on the progress concerning the Ocean CoP. Responsible: Paul DiGiacomo, Deadline: 2011-05-20.

  3. Participation in Delta Conference: Robert Christian informed that the meeting program of the conference was not in control of the CZ It was highlighting observations while users were less represented. He mentioned that Jimmy Adegoke would be participating. The meeting likely was a good opportunity to set the stage for a global delta network.

4 Session Proposal for 2012 Oceans Sciences Meeting

Hans-Peter Plag pointed out that thematic session proposal for the 2012 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Salt Lake City, Feb. 20-24, 2012 can be submitted until May 16, 2011. Proposals can be submitted through http://www.sgmeet.com/osm2012/sessionsubmit.htm .

Action Item CZCP-CG-7-5: Paul DiGiacomo will draft a session proposal for the 2012 Ocean Meeting and circulate it to the Core Group. Responsible: Paul DiGiacomo, Deadline: 2011-05-10.

Paul DiGiacomo commented that this could be used as a starting point for the session. Hans-Peter Plag wanted to see indicators for the coastal zone state considered.

5 Participation in GEO AIP-4

Hans-Peter Plag reported that a call for proposals for participation in the Architecture Implementation Pilot 4 (AIP-4) has been published at http://www.earthobservations.org/geoss_call_aip.shtml .

Deadline for proposals was May 8, 2011 it was agreed to propose an activity related to the information system.

Action Item CZCP-CG-7-6: Hans-Peter Plag will prepare a proposal related to the CZCP information system for the AIP-4 Call for proposals. Responsible: Hans-Peter Plag, Deadline: 2011-05-7.

Robert Christian suggested to focus on a social network analysis and expressed that he would be willing help. Such a network would be a good avenue to faster collaboration.

6 CZCP Contribution to GEO Work Plan

Hans-Peter Plag explained that a V0 draft GEO Work Plan for 2012-2015 was available for comments. This draft would be discussed in detail during the Work Plan Symposium, May 4-6, 2011, in Geneva.

Action Item CZCP-CG-7-7: Hans-Peter Plag will investigate whether a GEO Work Plan task related to the CZCP can be proposed for inclusion in the GEO Work Plan. Responsible: Hans-Peter Plag, Deadline: 2011-05-06.

There was consensus that this was a good start. Paul DiGiacomo requested that the theme be made more specific. Hans-Peter Plag pointed out that the Steering Committee should be established as soon as possible. It was suggested to invite Pablo Clemente-Colon, Yves Crevier, Hans-Peter Plag, Paul DiGiacomo, Michael Bruno, and someone from the European group. Hans-Peter Plag also suggested to aim for a Russian member.

Action Item CZCP-CG-7-8: Hans-Peter Plag will send out invitations to the list discussed at CG-7 to be a member of the Steering Committee for the 2012 CZCP Workshop. Responsible: Hans-Peter Plag, Deadline: 2011-05-31.
