Dear Ross Sea research community,
Thanks again to all of you who were able to attend our planning meeting and to those of you who were there in spirit. We have a variety of updates and resources to share with you below, including moving forward on Working Groups.
- We have finalized the Workshop Report from our October Planning Meeting. The Report can be downloaded from our website here.
- We have also crafted a one-page flier, which can be downloaded here.
- The Ross Sea research website has been updated to reflect the outcomes of the meeting, and with additional new tabs, including a "Resources" tab with links to funding opportunities. Regarding funding, we wanted to highlight two relevant funding opportunities with rapidly approaching deadlines:
- Lenfest's RFP Managing Marine Protected Areas in Changing Climate due January 23.
- NSF Antarctic Sciences Research requiring field support (NSF 23-509) due January 17.
- Note that NSF Antarctic Sciences 23-509 (research NOT requiring field support) still has a rolling deadline.
- We welcome anyone interested in participating in one (or more) of the Working Groups (WGs). There are four WGs, one for each research theme (Research Networking, Biophysical Modeling, Data Science/Cyberinfrastructure, Observations/Process Studies). By joining a WG, you agree to work in an open and collaborative manner with other WG participants. The list of WG participants serves as an overall contact list for coordinating proposal ideas and scheduling ongoing discussions via a maintained listserv for each of the four WG’s. The lead coordinators of each WG will serve as the main Points of Contact for anyone interested in a WG; they will also maintain and update the listserv as needed and be responsible for coordinating discussions and/or meeting activities with the other WG’s as needed.Working Groups. You can join a WG by signing up HERE.
- Finally, please use this community-wide listserv by sending emails to RossSeaWorkshop@lists.colorado.edu. Let it be a way our community can connect and share resources, including ideas. Also, please feel free to share this information with your colleagues who may not yet know about this effort.
We look forward to working with you all in the coming months and years! Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
All best and happy holidays,
