The first GO-BGC deployments are being carried out in the western North Atlantic through a partnership with the International Global Ocean Ship-Based Hydrographic Investigation Program (GO-SHIP). In total, twelve biogeochemical floats will be deployed along the A20 and A22 GO-SHIP lines by researchers and crew of the R/V Thomas G. Thompson.

Associated documentation, shipboard validation data sets, and float data sets are available here.  Adopt-a-float data table is here.
