Unit Affiliation: Biology and Paleo Environment, Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)

December 2019 - November 2022
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: In this study, we propose a way forward to improve satellite based Net Primary Production measurements with assessments of uncertainties, through development of a novel Bio-optical Monitoring and Evaluation System (BIOMES) that offers a more sophisticated and
pragmatic approach for extending shipboard measurements of Net Primary Production to local, regional and basin scales
