Bio-GO-SHIP officially supported by NOAA and NASA

NOAA’s Global Ocean Monitoring and Observing Program (GOMO) and Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS), in partnership with NASA Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry Program, recently awarded $500,000 via the National Ocean Partnership Program (NOPP) to several institutions to assess marine ecosystem health and the influence of changing ocean dynamics on plankton. This two-year project is part of a larger multi-agency effort and will leverage the global-reaching NOAA- and NSF-led U.S. Global Ocean Ship-based Hydrographic Investigations Program (GO-SHIP) platforms to investigate the distributions and biogeochemical roles of plankton in the global ocean.
