A Global Biogeochemical-Argo: Progress on Planning

Following encouragement from the Argo Steering Team, planning for a global, Biogeochemical-Argo system is underway.  A session at the US-OCB summer workshop will report on work being done in the Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling program (SOCCOM), which is one of several regional float arrays being operated around the globe.  In many regards, these regional arrays serve as prototypes for a global array of profiling floats with biogeochemical sensors.
