Data Center Description
The U.S. GLOBEC (GLOBal ocean ECosystems dynamics) is a research program organized by oceanographers and fisheries scientists to address the question of how global climate change may affect the abundance and production of animals in the sea.
The U.S. GLOBEC Program currently has major research efforts underway in the Georges Bank / Northwest Atlantic Region, and the Northeast Pacific (with components in the California Current and in the Coastal Gulf of Alaska). U.S. GLOBEC is a major contributor to International GLOBEC efforts now underway in the Southern Ocean and Western Antarctic Peninsula (WAP).
U.S. GLOBEC is a component of the U.S. Global Change Research Program, with support from the:
U.S. National Science Foundation Division of Ocean Sciences
U.S. National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration Coastal Ocean Program Office.
