Time Series Measurements|
Time-series observations of long duration were begun in 1988 at two key oceanic sites.
Bermuda Atlantic Time Series
As part of the U.S. Joint Global Ocean
Flux Study (JGOFS), researchers from
the Bermuda Biological Station are
conducting long time-series studies of
biogeochemical cycles in the Sargasso
Sea near Bermuda. This project, the
Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Study
(BATS), involves making monthly
measurements of important
hydrographic and biological parameters
throughout the water column at sites in
the Sargasso Sea.
Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT Study)
Hosted by the School of Ocean & Earth Science & Technology of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
program celebrated its 75th cruise in mid-September, 1996 with a HOT-75
symposium which was well-attended and very informative.
also the home of the Satellite Oceanography Laboratory established by Pierre
Flament. Also, available there is a Hawaii Ocean Time-series Data
Organization & Graphical System, HOT-DOGS.
Decade of HOT data
published on CD-ROM (1999)
A Hawaii Ocean Time-series CD-ROM
entitled, "The Hawaii Ocean Time-series: A Decade of Interdisciplinary
Oceanography", was published in 1999 by Roger Lukas and Dave Karl of the
University of Hawaii, provides complete access to the 10-year dataset produced
by the HOT project along with comprehensive supporting documentation. (CD-ROM no longer available; visit HOT web site online for data » HOT web site)
