Swedish Polar Research Secretariat partners with SOOS

The Swedish Polar Research Secretariat has partnered with SOOS in a three-year partnership to develop a network of researchers, policy and industry members with an interest in the Southern Ocean. 

SMaRC members and students are invited to join this network. There will likely be annual scientific meetings,
where SMaRC presentations could be given to the Swedish Southern Ocean research community and other interested communities, as well as in-person engagement and virtual information sharing.
