GO-BGC Science Webinar 4: Observing Mesoscale and Sub-Mesoscale Processes with BGC Argo

February 15 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST

Please join us for the quarterly GO-BGC webinar, hosted by the US Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Project Office. This webinar will be focused on using BGC-Argo float data to investigate chemical and biological processes in the ocean that are influenced by eddies, meanders, and other mesoscale and sub-mesoscale processes. The webinar will begin with an update on the status of the GO-BGC float array, followed by two short presentations. We’ll then close with a community discussion about recommended practices, challenges, and future perspectives of using BGC-Argo measurements to enhance our understanding of how mesoscale processes shape patterns of biogeochemistry in marine environments. Recordings will be available on the OCB and GO-BGC websites.
