SOLOMON: Southern Ocean Long-term Observation and MONitoring

Join Jennifer Magnusson as she deploys SOCCOM floats on the SOLOMON cruise!  The goal of the SOLOMON expedition is to understand the current status of heat and carbon uptake capacity in the West Antarctic region and investigate the variability of material cycles and marine ecosystem response. The science team will be collecting samples and making observations such as:

  • Assessment of heat transport chance and carbon uptake evolution in the Southern Ocean
  • Variability of biogeochemical cycles in the Southern Ocean coastal region under shrinking cryosphere (global warming)
  • Detect biological production change and tracing marine ecosystem response
