SOCCOM is now in our second official season of float deployments!  

For access to all float data, click here.

You can also find reports and calibration data from all of our cruises on our Cruise Information page, check the status of our biogeochemical floats, and track them on this interactive map with float tracks and simple data profiles (courtesy of the Oceanographic Autonomous Observations program).

SOCCOM Project

The Southern Ocean that encircles Antarctica lends a considerable hand in keeping Earth's temperature hospitable, accounting for half of the ocean's uptake of human-made carbon from the atmosphere and the majority of its uptake of heat. Yet, the inner workings — and global importance — of this ocean that accounts for 30 percent of the world's ocean area remains relatively unknown to scientists, as observations remain hindered by dangerous seas.
