As one of the oldest oceanic time series sites, Ocean Station Papa (50°N, 145°W) is a critical site in the global network of OceanSITES time series reference sites. Through support from the US NSF and NOAA and in collaboration with the Canadian DFO Line P Program, a surface mooring was deployed in June 2007 at Ocean Station Papa to monitor ocean-atmosphere interactions, carbon uptake, and ocean acidification.

Dr. Steve Emerson (University of Washington): Gas Tension Devices, CTD, O2 sensors, pH
The Ocean Climate Station Papa surface mooring is funded through a National Science Foundation Carbon and Water in the Earth System project "North Pacific Carbon Cycle" to Dr Emerson (UW). NOAA support is provided through the Office of Ocean and Atmospheric Research. The mooring deployment and servicing will occur in collaboration with the Fisheries and Oceans Canada, Pacific Region, Line-P Program aboard the CCGS John P.Tully.
