Final chance for comment of the oceanographic community: Implementation plan for NASA-funded “EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing” (EXPORTS)

The goal of the “EXport Processes in the Ocean from RemoTe Sensing” (EXPORTS) field campaign is to develop a predictive understanding of the export and fate of net primary production and its implications for the ocean’s carbon cycle. EXPORTS builds upon decades of NASA-supported research assessing global NPP. The EXPORTS Science Plan has already been thoroughly vetted by the community. 

NASA formed a Science Definition Team (SDT) to draft an Implementation Plan for EXPORTS. A draft of that plan is now available for comment. 

 

New Antarctic ice discovery aids future climate predictions

A team of British climate scientists comparing today’s environment with the warm period before the last ice age has discovered a 65% reduction of Antarctic sea ice around 128,000 years ago.  The finding is an important contribution towards the challenge of making robust predictions about the Earth’s future climate.
