ALPS-II meeting: Progress and challenges in autonomous platforms and sensors for ocean research
The ALPS-II meeting (Autonomous and Lagrangian Platforms and Sensors) which is related to BGC-Argo present and future activities, was organized at Scripps Institution of Oceanography:
  • To survey progress in autonomous platforms and sensors for ocean research since the original ALPS meeting.
  • To assess future prospects and challenges
The ALPS-I meeting in 2003 was seminal for Biogeochemical-Argo in the US
12th IOCCP Scientific Steering Group, 6 - 7 February 2017, Miami, USA
  • BGC-Argo: Quick history, present status and possible
    interactions with IOCCP
