Upper ocean biogeochemistry

CNR cycling in the 21st century

Project Manager: Francisco Chavez
Lead Scientists: Ken Johnson, Chris Scholin, Peter Zehr
Lead Engineers: Jim Bellingham, Zbigniew Kolber, Kevin Gomes, Brett Hobson, Gene Massion

This scoping project will bring together researchers within MBARI and beyond to develop a science plan and define instrument needs for a new MBARI initiative to understand how carbon, nitrogen, and redox cycles interact to define the biological activity of the ocean and respond to climate change. The goal is to develop an integrated approach that will define a current baseline and anticipate future changes to ocean chemistry and biology in response to natural and anthropogenic forcing.
