SOCAT version 3 released

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!

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).
