The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling project (SOCCOM) is a multi-institutional program focused on unlocking the mysteries of the Southern Ocean and determining its influence on climate. Housed at Princeton University, SOCCOM is supported by the National Science Foundation(link is external) under NSF Award PLR-1425989 and OPP-1936222.

The interactive map below shows current locations and trajectories of SOCCOM biogeochemical floats and provides links to real-time raw and quality-controlled float data. Daily sea ice extent from the US National Ice Center is shown shaded in blue. The map was originally developed by Kelly Kearney (University of Washington) in cooperation with MBARI, although it has since received a number of enhancements from various contributors. The code is open source; recent development can be tracked here. This page is currently maintained by Tanya Maurer (MBARI).

SOCCOM float data are freely available to the public without restriction. Authors using SOCCOM float data should acknowledge that “Data were collected and made freely available by the Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) Project funded by National Science Foundation, Division of Polar Programs (NSF PLR -1425989), supplemented by NOAA and NASA.”
