Bio-GO-SHIP aims to become an international collaboration to measure, understand, and predict the distribution and biogeochemical role of pelagic plankton communities. The project leverages the global-reaching GO-SHIP platform and its complementary hydrographic measurements.

The Bio-GO-SHIP team regularly joins ocean-crossing research expeditions to get new measurements of marine ecosystems.

Bio-GO-SHIP is supported by the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, National Science Foundation, and National Aeronautics and Space Administration.
