Ocean Sciences 2024

Logo for the 2024 Ocean Sciences Meeting
Will you be attending the Ocean Sciences Meeting in New Orleans this year? If so, we hope you’ll check out the following talks and posters by OOI Data Labs community members. All of these will feature first-hand accounts from faculty who have used the OOI Lab Manual or OOI Data Explorations in their classrooms. We hope you’ll join us!

You can also find a much larger list of OOI and ocean observatory related talks, posters, and workshops on the OOI at the Ocean Sciences Meeting 2024 page.  And the OOI will be at booth #210 on the exhibit floor, where you can ask questions and participate in daily data demonstrations.  I’m sure you’ll find some fellow Data Labs community members there too!

*This page was updated on Feb 27 to add talks and posters.
