The International Group for Marine Ecological Time Series (IGMETS) has released its report entitled “What are Marine Ecological Time Series telling us about the ocean? A status report.”
Download the full report PDF or individual sections.
This first report presents an analysis and overview of oceanic trends through the end of 2012, based on a collection of over 340 in situ marine ecological time series, and supplemented with satellite-based spatio-temporal sea surface temperature and chlorophyll background fields.
This report features electronic supplements in the form of a Metabase and the IGMETS time series Explorer allows users to further expand on the information featured in the text.
This report was made possible through support from the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC), the International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP), the Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Program (OCB), and the Korea Institute of Ocean Science & Technology (KIOST).
