A National Science Foundation Mid-Scale Research Infrastructure Project

GO-BGC

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.

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...

Beware the Blob! Ocean heatwaves threaten microbes that help counter global warming

Mariana Bif, a Research Specialist at MBARI, was recently interviewed in article in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists entitled: Beware the Blob! Ocean heatwaves threaten microbes that help counter global warming.  Mariana talks about using data from biogeochemical floats to look at anomalous amounts of organic carbon in the ocean during blob years and outlines the connection with climate change.
