The California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI) are a unique partnership of the California Department of Fish & Wildlife, NOAA Fisheries Service and Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
This web site provides information from the SIO-CalCOFI Techinical Group, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography component of CalCOFI Program. Content will be added & updated whenever possible but http://calcofi.org is the primary information and data web site for the CalCOFI Program.
This site is primarily a developmental site for calcofi.org with additional SIO-CalCOFI related information used locally.
California Cooperative Oceanic Fisheries Investigations (CalCOFI) is a partnership between the Integrative Oceanography Division at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, National Marine Fisheries Service at the Southwest Fisheries Science Center La Jolla, & the California Dept of Fish & Wildlife. This ancillary site of www.calcofi.org compiles information specific to the SIO portion of CalCOFI work.
The SIO-CalCOFI Technical Group manages the CTD-rosette systems deployed on CalCOFI cruises and is responsible for the core seawater measurements (temperatue, salinity, oxygen, nutrients, chlororphyll/phaeopigments, primary productivity, DIC/pH, NCOG sample collection, analyses, & data processing) at-sea. SIO-CalCOFI processes and serves hydrographic bottle data, CTD sensor data, and underway data (which may include meteorological, ADCP, & TSG-FP - thermosalinograph with fluorometer & pH sensor) collected on quartely CalCOFI cruises.
The CalCOFI Technical Group at Scripps Institution of Oceaography occupy offices on the second floor, west wing of the Marine Ecosystem Sensing, Observation and Modeling (MESOM) Laboratory at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego. 8880 Biological Grade, La Jolla, California (Link on Google Maps).
