The Decade Project C-SCOPE in Action incorporates the ongoing work and goes beyond it, in its time frame and objectives.
C-SCOPE, the joint project this Decade Project is based on, aims to enhance marine carbon observation, by:
- Using Ship-of-Opportunity (SOOP) lines to measure the CO2 uptake capacities
- Connecting BGC-Argo and surface measurements of SOOP lines to explore synergies for better observational data products
- Assessing the structural dimension of marine CO2 observations and their implications in order to develop a concept for Open Ocean Science
The Decade Project C-SCOPE in Action incorporates the ongoing work and goes beyond it, in its time frame and objectives. In particular it aims to sustainably maintain the above mentioned observation systems, to contribute with the obtained findings to the ocean carbon community, in particular the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON) and the affiliated Ocean Decade programme Ocean Acidification research for Sustainability (OARS) and to strengthen the interoperability between the databases.
This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Ocean Acidification Research for Sustainability (OARS)
