Ocean observations from multiple platforms spanning a range of spatial and temporal scales form the backbone of OCB research. The OCB community is interested in all forms of ocean observing, including shipboard, autonomous, and space-based platforms. The OCB Scientific Steering Committee maintains dedicated subcommittees focused on shipboard ocean time series and autonomous networks. Members of the OCB community have also been actively involved in the planning of large field campaigns such as NASA EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing (EXPORTS) and the next satellite ocean color mission NASA PACE : Plankton, Aerosol, Cloud, ocean Ecosystem.
