Applications for OOIFB Data Delivery & Cyberinfrastructure Committee

May 28, 2020
The NSF Ocean Observatories Initiative Facility Board (OOIFB) is seeking applications for those willing to serve on its Data Delivery and Cyberinfrastructure Committee (DDCI). Applications are due 24 June 2020. OOIFB established the DDCI Committee in late 2018 to help ensure timely and reliable access to high-quality Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) data. The DDCI Committee provides ...

NSF OCE encourages proposers to use existing data and samples

May 26, 2020
In its 23 April OCE newsletter, the National Science Foundation’s Division of Ocean Sciences reminded the oceanographic community of its interest in receiving proposals that use existing data and samples.  “The ocean research community has made significant progress in getting data and samples into public repositories for wider use and re-use.  We believe these resources ...

COVID-19 Impacts Cruises and Cruise Preparations

May 22, 2020
“Can someone in quarantine walk their dog?” “Does the whole family have to quarantine or only the person about to board the ship?” “Is isolating in a cabin in the woods for two weeks prior to boarding a real quarantine solution? These are the type of questions the OOI teams planning upcoming operation and management (O&M) ...

Altered Carbon: Improvement to CO2 Measurements Enhance OOI Data Quality

May 18, 2020
Global carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations are increasing in the atmosphere, largely due to the use of fossil fuels. The oceans are absorbing about 25-30 percent of the atmospheric CO2, resulting in a shift in seawater acid-base chemistry and a decrease in ocean pH, making seawater more acidic. To help scientists assess this changing ocean chemistry, ...

Assessment of OOI Endurance Array pCO2 Data Quality

May 11, 2020
Given the significant importance of understanding and modeling levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere (and its potential sources and sinks), Ocean-Atmosphere Exchange and Global Biogeochemistry and Carbon Cycling are two of the OOI’s primary science themes. We address these themes in part through measurements of the air and surface water partial pressure of carbon ...
