AGU Fall Meeting Town Hall

Virtual Meeting

Current and Future Biogeochemical–Argo Programs and Planning, TH096 Wednesday, 16 December 2020, 7:00 - 8:00 AM PST (10:00 - 11:00 EST) The ocean provides critical services to life on the planet, absorbing 93% of the heat from anthropogenic warming and a quarter of human CO2 emissions each year. Yet these services come at a price: […]

The Global Biogeochemical-Argo Fleet: Knowledge to Action Workshop

Virtual Meeting

May 4, 11, 18, 25, and June 1 - 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. Visit the event page to access the meeting schedule, pre-recorded and archived talks, and discussion forms.

GO-BGC Town Hall at ASLO/OSM

Virtual Meeting

The Biogeochemical-Argo program aims to develop a global network of 1000 Argo profiling floats with oxygen, nitrate, pH, and bio-optical sensors. The BGC-Argo array will operate as one component of the One Argo array, including Core-Argo and Deep-Argo. Contributions of floats with biogeochemical sensors have come from over 20 nations. The BGC-Argo array will address key questions such as: What is the ocean's role in regulating the carbon cycle? What are the drivers of open ocean deoxygenation? How do physical changes in mixing and circulation affect nutrient availability and productivity? Is the timing and location of phytoplankton blooms changing?

GO-BGC Science Webinar kickoff

Virtual Meeting

GO-BGC will start hosting quarterly webinars about 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. The kickoff webinar will be focused on updating the status of GO-BGC and BGC-Argo, projected float deployment locations over the next year, followed by community Q&A.

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

Virtual Meeting

Please join us for the quarterly GO-BGC webinar, hosted by the US Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry program. This webinar will be 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. We will hear 3 short presentations about exciting new work in this area, followed by a community discussion about best practices, challenges, and future perspectives of using BGC-Argo data to advance our understanding of ecological dynamics and the footprint of progressive climate change on the ocean. Recordings will be available on the OCB and GO-BGC website.

2022 MBARI EARTH Teacher Workshop

The 2022 EARTH workshop will be held July 25-29, 2022 in Seattle, WA, co-hosted by MBARI and GO-BGC. During the workshop, educators work with active researchers to explore current science and/or engineering research, data, and conclusions and develop their own curricula using the knowledge from these explorations and their own experiences to create classroom lessons.
