    21-5 The Role of Oceanic Processes in the Global Carbon Cycle (NSF)

    The International Joint Global Ocean Flux Study and its American component, U.S.JGOFS, were organized with the goals of 1) determining and understanding the processes controlling time-varying fluxes of carbon and associated biogenic elements in the ocean and 2) predicting the response of marine biogeochemical processes to climate change. Biogeochemical process studies in several ocean regions, a global ocean carbon dioxide survey, and two sets of ocean time-series observations have produced massive and unprecedented sets of synoptic data that require synthesis into a unified picture of the marine carbon cycle in the context of global climate. This Announcement solicits research proposals to synthesize results from these efforts into a set of models that can be used for prediction.(NSF 99-124)
