OBB Campaign Scoping Studies

Under the NASA ROSES 2012 A.3 Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry program element, NASA advertised for scoping studies to identify the scientific questions and develop the initial study design and implementation concept for a new NASA Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry field campaign or related team project (scale on par with ICESCAPE, SO GasEx, etc.).

Three scoping study projects were funded in 2012 & 2013 for a future Field Campaign.  View abstracts.

Arctic COLORS: Arctic-COastal Land Ocean InteRactionS

Immediately following the OCB workshop, there will be a 1.5-day open community workshop at WHOI (July 28-29) to engage scientists interested in Arctic COLORS in a dialog about the proposed field campaign and obtain broad community input on these revisions. During this workshop, discussions will focus on (1) the top level science questions, (2) potential de-scoping scenarios, and (3) narrowing the study domain.
