About OceanSITES

JAMSTEC has been participated in and contributed to the international OceanSITES program (http://www.oceansites.org/index.html). OceanSITES is a system of long-term, deepwater reference stations measuring various kinds of variables and monitoring the full depth of the ocean from air-sea interactions down to 5,000 meters, in a global ocean. More than 60 OceanSITES time-series stations are now in operation. Please visit its Global Network page (http://www.oceansites.org/network/index.html) and Data page (http://www.oceansites.org/data/index.html), then you can find global maps showing where these stations are, and download all available data under the OceanSITES.

JAMSTEC's Contribution and Data

Three JAMSTEC projects have been contributed to the OceanSITES. KEO project has deployed time-series sediment trap mooring in the subtropical gyre and biogeochemical data have been provided to OceanSITES. TRITON buoy project in tropical Pacific has collected atmospheric and oceanic data and these datasets have been provided to OceanSITES. K2 project has deployed time-series sediment traps at K2 in the western North Pacific subarctic gyre and seasonal biogeochemical data collected by sediment trap has been provided to OceanSITES.
