SIDEBAR • Sixty-Four Days of Hydrography and Storms: RVIB Nathaniel B. Palmer's 2011 S04P Cruise

James H. Swift Alejandro H. Orsi
First Paragraph

Beginning 2003, the United States has systematically reoccupied select hydrographic sections from the 1990s World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) as part of this country’s contribution to the Climate Variability and Prediction (CLIVAR) and Global Ocean Carbon programs of the World Climate Research Programme and International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project. The overarching goal of these efforts is to quantify changes in storage and transport of heat, freshwater, carbon dioxide, and other related parameters.
