A CPO-funded study shows biogeochemical floats can be used to improve measurements of sea-air CO2 exchanges, which are essential for future improvements in climate modeling and projections.
A study published in Global Biogeochemical Cycles contributes evidence that the Kuroshio Extension transition zone is a biological hot spot for carbon cycling within the North Pacific carbon sink region.
An important pilot study will provide data for improving observations in the Tropical Pacific.
NOAA is investing $4.5 million over the next four years in four projects testing technology to enhance the Tropical Pacific Observing System (TPOS), which improves understanding of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), how it develops, and how it affects Earth’s weather.
