Meetings, webinars, and tutorials. 

GO-BGC + OCB Webinar Series

GO-BGC quarterly webinars on emerging science using GO-BGC or BGC-Argo float data, focusing on early career researchers. The webinar series is hosted by the US Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry program.

Science Selfies

Go in-depth with two GO-BGC team members: Tanya Maurer and Ben Davis. 

Tanya manages GO-BGC and SOCCOM data and data processing. Ben is part of the Chemical Sensor Team where he develops, tests and calibrates chemical sensors.

Virtual Workshop on the New Global Biogeochemistry (GO-BGC) Array

June 28 – 30, 2021 

Building a community of biogeochemistry float data users.

MATE ROV Challenge takes on the Global Biogeochemistry (GO-BGC) Array

The MATE ROV Competition uses underwater robots to inspire and challenge students to learn and creatively apply science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to solve real-world problems and strengthen their critical thinking, collaboration, entrepreneurship, and innovation. As part of the GO-BGC outreach efforts, the MATE ROV Competition offered a MATE Floats! “satellite” challenge. In this challenge, teams of students in grades 4–16 are tasked with building a float that uses active ballasting to descend to depth and back to the surface.

Robotic floats provide a new look at ocean health and global carbon cycle

June 2021

Microscopic marine life plays a fundamental role in the health of our planet. Just like plants on land, tiny phytoplankton use photosynthesis to consume carbon dioxide and convert it into organic matter and oxygen. This biological transformation is called marine primary productivity, and it ebbs and flows in response to changes in our climate.

Video tutorials for the GO-BGC Float Toolbox

June 2021

Learn to access and use GO-BGC data with MATLAB, R, and Python.

Global Biogeochemical-Argo Fleet: Knowledge to Action Workshop

May 4 – June 1 2021

A virtual workshop building on the priorities of the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative to explore the applications of a global data-stream from the Biogeochemical-Argo array in fisheries, carbon budget verification, and environmental forecasting.
