There is extraordinary, unexploited strength in numbers with respect to ocean time-series. Large spatial-scale analyses using many different time-series will allow us to detect and interpret links between climate variability and ocean biogeochemistry, ultimately improving our understanding of marine ecosystem change. However, in order to bring together datasets from different time-series, it is important that the sampling and analytical protocols used at each site are transparent, consistent, and inter-comparable.
On this website, you will find information about ship-based biogeochemical ocean time-series around the world, what variables they measure, and what methods they use. This is part of a continually growing international network of shipboard biogeochemical time-series that was initiated at a workshop in November 2012 focused on methodological approaches (workshop report) for time-series sample collection and measurement. Additional resources related to biogeochemical time-series can also be found throughout this website.
Time-Series Email ListThe international network of shipboard biogeochemical time-series also offers an email list. It represents an opportunity for time-series PIs and staff to communicate and coordinate with one another. The list is used to provide information about:
