A National Science Foundation Mid-Scale Research Infrastructure Project
The Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Array is a global robotic network of profiling floats carrying chemical and biological sensors that will revolutionize our understanding of ocean biogeochemical cycles, carbon uptake, acidification, deoxygenation, and ecosystem health.
Data from floats and ships, and tutorials on using the data
Array map and status table, current and future deployments
Partnering teachers with scientists to bring research into the classroom
Upcoming events related to the GO-BGC project
GO-BGC-affiliated students become PhDs
Drs. Paul Chamberlain, Rosalind Echols, and Channing Prend have recently graduated after defending their PhD theses.
Congrats to Dr. Wijffels
Dr. Susan Wijffels was awarded the Henry Stommel Research Medal, the highest award the American Meteorological Society can bestow on an oceanographer.
GO-BGC celebrates its first anniversary
Locations of GO-BGC floats deployed to date in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. By 2025, the GO-BGC array will cover all the world’s major ocean basins. (MBARI) The NSF-funded Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Array (GO-BGC Array) is one year old! On March 25, 2021, a...
Revolutionizing our understanding of the ocean
Scientists at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, the University of Washington, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and Princeton University will use this grant to build and deploy 500 robotic ocean-monitoring floats around the globe as part of NSF’s Mid-scale Research Infrastructure-2 program
