GO-BGC Science Webinar 2: Understanding ecological dynamics using BGC-Argo data

June 29 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

Please join us for the quarterly GO-BGC webinar, hosted by the US Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry program. This webinar is focused on investigations of phytoplankton phenology and variability at regional to global scales using a range of chemical and bio-optical sensors on the BGC-Argo floats. After 3 short presentations about exciting new work in this area, a community discussion will follow of best practices, challenges, and future perspectives on using BGC-Argo data to advance our understanding of ecological dynamics and the footprint of progressive climate change on the ocean. Recordings are available on the OCB and GO-BGC website (link below).

Agenda:
• Yui Takeshita (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute):  A update on the GO-BGC program
• Mariana Bif (Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute): The impact of heatwaves on the northeast Pacific ecosystem
• Nicholas Bock (Columbia University): Biogeographical classification of the global ocean from BGC-Argo Floats
• Marin Cornec (NOAA Pacific Environmental Laboratory): Dynamics of the deep chlorophyll maxima at a global scale based on bio-optical measurements of BGC-Argo floats
• Discussion
