U.S. GO-SHIP Executive Council

The executive council for US GO-SHIP sees that the program of repeat hydrography, ocean carbon, and tracer measurements is completed to fulfill the scientific objectives of GO-SHIP.

See the Executive Council Terms of Reference.

Contact the committee co-chairs (Gregory C. Johnson and Alison Macdonald) for information on participation or for incorporation of a Level 3 measurement or a measurement that is not on the list of Core Measurements.

Jim Swift along with interim project manager Alison Macdonald work the committee with coordination of program activities carried out by US academic institutions, such as ship-time requests for non-NOAA ships, pre-cruise information and logistics, organization of the shipboard physical oceanography team, and oversight of data reporting.
