The Argo programme has in many ways revolutionised the field of physical oceanography. The network of floats with biogeochemical sensors, called “BGC-Argo” has the same potetial for the biogeochemical-related oceanography, but is still to be fully utilised. With this is mind we will host a workshop in Bergen, with the main objetive to increase the interest and use of BGC-Argo data among Norwegian institutions. We invite anyone interested in these data, no matter the experience.

NorArgo is an ocean observing system for the Arctic that monitor, in near real-time, essential physical and ecosystem variables. It will operate an array of ~30 autonomous vertical profiling floats, Argo floats, that will carry various sensors (pressure, temperature, salinity, oxygen, pH, nitrate, etc.). NorArgo is funded by the Norwegian Research Council for 2018-2023 (through the infrastructure project NorArgo2).
