SMP Goals

(1) Global and Regional Balances of Carbon and Biologically Active Chemical Substances
(2) Local Carbon Balances and Mechanisms
(3) Extrapolation and Prediction
The main objective of the U.S. JGOFS Synthesis and Modeling Project (SMP) is 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.  The SMP is funded by the following agencies:
