The #ExOIS program was presented at the annual meeting of the @SOCCOMProject this week. Great discussions about how @GO_BGC can help with #MRV for #mCDR. Thank you Mark Wells for presenting!

Jessica Drysdale gave a great overview of the objectives and activities of #ExOIS at the #OCB2024 Summer Workshop, and the need for the best science to find out if #OceanIronFertilization #OIF should be part of our #mCDR toolbox. Thank you @US_OCB for the pic and time to present!

Thank you Dennis McGillicuddy & Jessica Drysdale for raising awareness about the activities and objectives of #ExOIS at the #OCB2024 Summer Workshop. Jessica also has a talk today at 15:50 EST. @US_OCB #OIF #mCDR

#CHOW24 starts tomorrow! Tune in on Wed at 4:45 EST to hear Ocean Visions’ @Court_Ocean and other leaders discuss priorities to protect people and nature while investigating marine #carbonremoval as a #climatesolution. Free CHOW registration required: https://preconvirtual.com/chow-agenda-2024/

This autonomous sampler for thorium-234 presented the @ARPAE Energy Innovation Summit might help to reduce the uncertainty of carbon export. Autonomous tech will be essential for the next generation of #OceanIronFertilization experiments for #mCDR
@Cafe_Thorium @WHOI

#ExOIS continues to get the word out there about #OceanIronFertilization #OIF for #CDR, this time in Dallas, Texas at the @ARPAE Energy Innovation Summit
@Cafe_Thorium @WHOI

"We need (marine #carbonremoval) field trials to deliver evidence about risks, and to suggest strategies to mitigate those risks." - Ocean Visions Chief Scientist @David_Koweek
