Study Finds New York City at Increased Threat of Tropical Cyclones and Coastal Flooding

A cross CPO-funded study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences presents evidence of a dramatic increase in the frequency of large flooding events in New York City due to sea level rise and the size and intensity of tropical storms.

SOCAT version 3 released

The Surface Ocean Carbon Atlas (SOCAT) is a community effort to assemble and quality control all publically available surface water partial pressure/fugacity of carbon dioxide CO2 data (pCO2 or fCO2). This data is the cornerstone to determine fluxes of CO2 between the ocean and atmosphere, and trends in surface ocean acidification. Over one-third of the data originates from CPO/COD funded efforts on ship of opportunity (SOOP-CO2) and moorings.

Recent evidence for a strengthening CO2 sink in the Southern Ocean

In this COD-funded study published in Geophysical Research Letters, researchers present a 13 year (2002–2015) semimonthly time series of the partial pressure of CO2 in surface water (pCO2surf) and other carbonate system parameters from the Drake Passage.

Deep Argo floats recovered successfully! 18 September 2015

Deep Argo floats recovered successfully!

This week two Deep SOLO prototypes were recovered after being in the Pacific for a little more than a year.  These prototypes are able to go down to 6000m and send valuable data via satellites to scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO).
