An OCB topical subcommittee focused on Biogeochemical-Argo
Objective: This committee will serve as a focal point for US community input on the implementation of the global biogeochemical float array and associated science program development. This committee will also engage with and provide US input to the International Biogeochemical-Argo steering committee.

By Ken Johnson (MBARI) The Biogeochemical-Argo (BGC-Argo) Program is an international effort to develop a global network of biogeochemical sensors on Argo profiling floats that has emerged from over a decade of community discussion and planning. While there is no formal funding for this global program, it is being implemented via a series of international […]Read More
