The U.S. JGOFS Synthesis and Modeling Project invites manuscripts to be submitted for publication in a Topical Studies in Oceanography Issue in Deep Sea Research II, under the following theme:

"The synthesis of U.S. JGOFS and related data sets and modeling of ocean biogeochemistry with respect to the ocean carbon cycle and the controls on ocean atmosphere carbon partitioning".
This call is to all researchers whose work falls under the overall mission of the SMP to "synthesize knowledge gained from the U.S. JGOFS and related studies into models that reflect our current  understanding of the ocean carbon cycle and its associated uncertainties.  In particular, the processes that control carbon partitioning among oceanic reservoirs, and the implications on ocean/atmosphere carbon exchange, will be emphasized ." (detailed information on SMP goals can be found at http://usjgofs.whoi.edu/mzweb/syn-mod.htm).

This will be the SECOND of several special issues to be published in Deep Sea Research Part II.  The FIRST Special Issue was published in January, 2002 (see list of papers and abstracts in the FIRST volume).

The following is a proposed schedule for this issue:

Aug 2001 Announcement to SMP PIs of Special Issue in DSR II 
Distribution of Guidelines for Submission and Instructions to Authors
Request for titles
Apr 30 2002 Deadline for manuscript submission
May 2002 Distribution of manuscripts to reviewers 
Mar 2003 Deadline for final manuscript submission
May 2003 Submission to publishers
Sum/Fall 2003 Date of expected publication

Please send an email to J Kleypas if you are interested in submitting a manuscript for this special issue, along with a proposed title.  Authors should consult: Guidelines for Submission of Topical Studies in Oceanography Manuscripts and Instructions to Authors for details on submitting manuscripts.
