Biological Ocean Group
Oceanographic Systems for Chemical, Optical, and Physical Experiments
sponsored Oceanographic-Systems for Chemical, Optical, and Physical Experiments (O-SCOPE)
addresses the need for next generation autonomous real-time interdisciplinary
(chemical, bio-optical, and physical) long-term time series measurements in critical
regions of the world oceans. To systematically obtain high resolution, long-term,
interdisciplinary ocean data, in analog to Mauna Loa CO2 time series, there is a need to
improve the variety, quantity, quality, and cost-effectiveness of observations using a
network of strategically placed moorings. Under the direction of Fransisco P. Chavez, Ph.D., scientists Gernot Friederich and Hans Jannasch will prepare CO2 and nitrate sensors for the deployment at
Bermuda TestBed Mooring (BTM) and
NOPP station P mooring in mid to late 1999.
PROPOSED MOORING LOCATIONS:
||31° 43' N
||64° 09' W
||July 29, 1999
||November 2, 1999
||November 10, 1999
||March TBA, 2000
