U.S. Global Ocean Ship-based Hydrographic Investigations Program
US GO-SHIP is part of the international GO-SHIP network of sustained hydrographic sections, supporting:
- Physical oceanography
- The carbon cycle
- Marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems
- Global ocean/climate observing system
2023: NOAA GO-SHIP A16N (March-May) two legs South to North along ~25°W in the Atlantic.
2023: NSF GO-SHIP I05 (July-Sept. 20223) East to West along 32°S in the Indian Ocean.
2024: Up next: A13.5 (Langseth, Jan.-Mar.) & I08S (Thompson, Feb-Mar.). Also being considered, but as yet unconfirmed - ARC01 (Healy, summer) and A16S (late fall).
I09N is likely in early 2025 (Thompson), but plans for the P04 reoccupation remain on hold.

GO-SHIP Easy Ocean
Katsumata et al. (2022) present GO-SHIP Easy Ocean, a climate quality gridded synthesis of the land-to-land surface-bottom hydrographic observations from International GO-SHIP repeat occupations. It is intended to be simple to navigate and to have a multitude of uses such as numerical model validation, process study comparison, and decadal-scale quantification of ocean change.
