Here are the details for a select number of the side meetings happening at CERF 2015. If you have any questions regarding the specifics of these meetings, please contact the meeting organizers. 

The Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group (CCIWG)

The Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group (CCIWG): A CCIWG-funded workshop in January 2016 will develop a template to submit to the USCCSP toward establishing a Global Science and Data Network for Coastal Blue Carbon (SBC).  At CERF 2015, we seek to gather insights from scientists and coastal practitioners on network and database structural goals to optimize accessibility, quality and utility.

Wednesday November 11 | 12:30 - 1:30 pm OCC - A 104

Coastal Acidification

Town Hall on Monitoring Coastal Acidification: This town hall will provide an overview of efforts to monitor the progression and impacts of ocean acidification in coastal and estuarine ecosystems and discuss a common way forward. We welcome all who are interested, and hope to build a more integrated community of those working in this field.

Wednesday, November 11 | 5 - 7:00 pm OCC - A 104

NASA Missions and a NASA Arctic Field Campaign Scoping Study

Chairs/Organizers (for both TownHalls):
Antonio Mannino, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center

Arctic-COLORS:  COastal Land Ocean inteRactionS in the Arctic: Arctic-COLORS is a proposed NASA program that combines field process studies, models, and remote-sensing, to study the coastal Arctic as an integrated land-ocean-atmosphere system, to determine present and future impacts of terrigenous, atmospheric and oceanic fluxes on coastal ecology, biogeochemistry, and ecosystem services.  The aim of the town hall is to update the community and obtain feedback.

Monday, November 9 | 5 - 6:30 pm OCC - C 123-124

Benefits and Challenges of Diurnal (hourly) Ocean Remote Sensing - Science and Applications: Future satellite observations can provide hourly measurements of coastal regions from NASA’s GEO-CAPE mission. This capability is necessary to study estuarine and shelf waters to monitor water quality, detect/track hazards, and improve models.  The aim is to provide an update on GEO-CAPE and obtain input from managers and scientists.

Tuesday, November 10 | 5 - 6:30 pm  OCC - C 123-124
