Ocean Oberservation Initiative - Global Station Papa

  • The Global Station Papa Array is a combination of fixed platforms (moorings) with moored profilers to address the requirement to sample the full water column and mobile platforms (gliders) that provide simultaneous spatial and temporal sampling capabilities. []
  • Line P Time Series Program

  • Ocean Station Papa, situated at 50°N, 145°W, was operated as an ocean weather station starting in December 1949. At that time, the weatherships were occupying Station Papa, and they kept doing so until 1981. After the withdrawal of the weatherships in 1981 the Line P/Station P Program was taken over by the Institute of Ocean Sciences from Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO). A complete history of the program is available. []
  • Ocean Biology & Biogeochemistry Program

  • The Ocean Biology & Biogeochemistry (OBB) program supports a number of Federal research objectives, e.g., the U.S. Global Change Research Program, which address aspects of Carbon Cycle and Ecosystem research from space, with a focus on understanding Earth’s aquatic environment and its role within the Earth System.
