Southern Ocean Town Hall: SOCCOM and Other Progress

Session ID#: 11186

Session Description:
The Southern Ocean Carbon & Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) project is a six-year NSF-funded study of heat and carbon uptake and nutrient resupply by the Southern Ocean and of the impact of these processes on Earth’s climate and biosphere.  SOCCOM consists of a growing network of autonomous biogeochemical profiling floats complemented by a high-resolution Southern Ocean state estimate and a high-resolution earth-system modeling program.

This forum will be an opportunity for researchers, educators, and policymakers to learn about SOCCOM progress and how to participate, with discussions of recent developments and plans for the future, including global scale observing systems.
