Large-Scale Ocean Research Projects

Beginning with the International Indian Ocean Expedition in the early 1960s, SCOR has been instrumental in the planning and coordination of several large-scale ocean research projects. SCOR provides a mechanism for international scientists to develop and implement such projects. In recent years, SCOR has been joined by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC), and other organizations in promoting large-scale ocean research projects. The international versions of the Global Ocean Ecosystem Dynamics project, the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study, the Tropical Ocean-Global Atmosphere project, the World Ocean Circulation Experiment, and the Global Ecology and Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms program resulted from SCOR working groups or other subsidiary groups.
