Monitoring the Global Ocean through Ocean Climate Indicators

Wednesday, October 07, 2015

NOAA’s Climate Monitoring program competitively selected two new three-year projects totaling $855,734 in grants to produce observation-based global and (preferably) regional indices that facilitate monitoring the status, trends, extremes, and variability of ocean physical properties for the benefit of research, predictions, and decision makers. The two new projects join 13 multi-year projects totaling $2.2 million, that were funded last year in the same competition.

Pacific Arctic Observations Addressing Causes and Consequences of Sea Ice Loss

Wednesday, October 07, 2015

In 2015, NOAA’s Arctic Research Program competitively funded three new five-year projects involving $4.2 million in grants (and benefit from additional support by interagency and international partners). Through these three new projects, university partners will help to carry out multidisciplinary observations and research for five years (from 2015­ to 2020), in support of analysis, and modeling in the Pacific Arctic, i.e., the Chukchi ­Beaufort Sea, the East Siberian Sea, and the Arctic Ocean north of these regions.

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $48M to advance climate research, improve community resilience

Wednesday, October 07, 2015

The Climate Program Office (CPO), a part of NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), has awarded 53 new projects conducted by NOAA laboratories and operational centers, universities, and other agency and research partners valued at more than $48 million over the 1-5 year duration of the projects.

SOCAT version 3 released

Wednesday, September 23, 2015
The Surface Ocean Carbon Atlas (SOCAT) is a community effort to assemble and quality control all publically available surface water partial pressure/fugacity of carbon dioxide CO2 data (pCO2 or fCO2). This data is the cornerstone to determine fluxes of CO2 between the ocean and atmosphere, and trends in surface ocean acidification. Over one-third of the data originates from CPO/COD funded efforts on ship of opportunity (SOOP-CO2) and moorings. 

Deep Argo floats recovered successfully!

Friday, September 18, 2015
This week two Deep SOLO prototypes were recovered after being in the Pacific for a little more than a year.  These prototypes are able to go down to 6000m and send valuable data via satellites to scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO).
