US GO-SHIP is part of the international GO-SHIP network of sustained hydrographic sections, supporting physical oceanography, the carbon cycle, and marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems. The US program is sponsored by US CLIVAR and OCB. Funded by the National Science Foundation and NOAA.
We are looking for students to participate in a hydrographic long-line cruise (6 weeks) in April-May, 2019, in the southern Indian Ocean/Southern Ocean on the R/V Thomas Thompson, as part of the US GO-SHIP program. The US GO-SHIP program collects data for global CO2 and climate variability programs.
