IS013:
Technology Advances in Deep Ocean Observing


Session ID#: 28539

Session Description:
Challenges for observing the deep ocean are to expand existing sensors and platforms to greater depth, resolve smaller signals, correct for pressure-induced error, and develop new technologies for measuring deep-ocean specific essential ocean variables.

This session solicits abstracts on sensors and platforms advancements for deep observations to address

      i.         the role of the deep ocean in the Earth's heat and freshwater budgets, carbon cycle, and sea level change,

     ii.         deep-ocean circulation and mixing,

    iii.         deep water mass formation,

    iv.         the fluxes of nutrients, tracers, oxygen, and carbon in the deep ocean,

     v.         the response of (i-iv) to natural and anthropogenic stress factors.

Abstracts on related system modeling such as observing system experiments are welcome.
