First Paragraph

U.S. JGOFS has greatly improved our understanding of geochemical fluxes in the ocean and their interaction with biological processes. Moreover, it has nurtured a community of researchers who cross traditional disciplinary boundaries to study the ocean in an integrated manner. The scientific achievements of U.S. JGOFS, documented in this issue of Oceanography, are paralleled by achievements in the way oceanographers work together on global-scale questions.
