IOCCP Position Paper on Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Data

The IOCCP Scientific Steering Group would like to announce its position with regards to the Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Data Management. The Position Paper highlights the vulnerability of the current global ocean carbon and biogeochemistry data management system that relies too heavily on individual data managers and institutions.

New Seafloor Carbonate Synthesis Product

To interface with whole-earth scale models, such as climate and circulation models, ocean substrates data have been gridded from dbSEABED at the global scale. The grid resolution is low (0.1 degrees), as for most of the models. Leads of this mapping project are seeking collaborations with chemical oceanographers.   

The carbonate synthesis follows early work by Archer (1996, "An atlas of the distribution of calcium carbonate in sediments of the deep sea." Global Biogeochemical Cycles 10, 159-174), but with a number of changes: 

NMEA- Ocean Education Conference Scholarships

National Marine Educators Association (NMEA) is a dedicated, influential member-based organization of classroom teachers, informal educators, university professors, scientists, and more from around the world working together to advance the understanding and protection of our freshwater and marine ecosystems. From scientists working in the deep sea to students studying underwater archeology in the Great Lakes, NMEA members are dedicated to making known the world of water, both fresh and salt.
