COP28: Observing the Changing Ocean

GO-BGC's Dr. Lynne Talley presented at COP 28. The ocean takes up more than 90% of the extra heat and 30% of the excess carbon dioxide produced by human activity that is exacerbating climate change. As a consequence, marine oxygen levels are dropping and marine...

COP28: A heated case for sustained ocean observations

GO-BGC's Dr. Lynne Talley presents at COP28. Marine heatwaves are a significant ecological and socioeconomic threat, worldwide, and have been increasing in both duration and frequency, a trend that is likely to continue. Though heatwaves at the sea surface can be...

GO-BGC featured in IIOE-2 Newsletter

GO-BGC featured in the 2nd International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE-2) Newsletter  The Indian Ocean has been one of the least sampled ocean basins in the BGC-Argo Array.  Over the past year 25 biogeochemical (BGC) profiling floats have been deployed in the Indian...

GO-BGC/BGC Argo Float Data Workshop

Accelerate your data analysis skills and launch new collaborations through this hands-on multi-day workshop focused on data from the Biogeochemical Argo global float array. Attendees will generate research ideas utilizing GO-BGC/BGC Argo float data and start working...

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...

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.
