Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to develop improved autonomous observation systems and analytical capabilities for describing the distributions and activities of marine microbes in relation to their physical, chemical and optical environment in support of multidisciplinary, data-assimilating predictive models of optical and biological processes in the world ocean. Our primary objectives are To develop and test new interdisciplinary sensor arrays on a variety of in situ platforms to describe biological variability in relation to the optical, physical and chemical environment of the ocean and To use data from these sensor systems in multidisciplinary models of physically and chemically driven ocean biology.
