• The Brazilian contribution to global Biogeochemical-Argo will be coordinated within the Argo-Brazil and GOOS-Brazil programs in collaboration with the Brazilian Navy in the scope of the Inter-ministry Comission Ocean Resources (CIRM) where the following national priorities will be defined.

  • The overall priorities of Brazil Biogeochemical-Argo will be in phase with those defined at an international level with respect to scientific and societal questions, variables to be acquired and float mission configuration.

  • Areas of preferential deployment are essentially the South Atlantic Ocean and the Atlantic Sector of the Southern Ocean.

The Brazilian contribution to global Biogeochemical-Argo will be tentatively supported through the following sources of funding.

  • Project-based funding: Biogeochemical-Argo contribution by the Brazilian community will be organized within the Brazil-Argo program, which is within the context of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS-Brazil). 4 Argo floats have been recently bought by the Brazilian Navy and similar funding will be pursued for Biogeochemical-Argo.
