Ocean Time-series Committee (OTC)
The primary focus of the Ocean Time-series Committee (OTC) is shipboard time-series stations, but this committee also seeks to improve existing and develop new ocean observing capabilities in support of OCB science, including autonomous instrument time-series. OTC continually works to align the evolving scientific needs of the OCB community with existing ocean observing capabilities and draw attention to critical observational gaps. Current OTC members include: Matt Church, Mike DeGrandpre, Stephanie Henson, Richard Lampitt, Naomi Levine, David “Roo” Nicholson, Oscar Schofield, Heidi Sosik, and Angel White. For more detailed information, please contact the OCB Project Office and/or view the OTC charge and terms of reference.
