IRT Outcomes

  • Growing scientific capacity (conduct research, explore);
    • Changes below 200 m: Physical (heat, salt, forecasting), Biogeochemical changes (C budgets, de-oxygenation)
    • Biological (e-DNA, connectivity, multiple stressors), Data (standardization OBP societal & stakeholder impact)
  • Training / human capacity bulding
  • Facilitation ability of researchers to work with others (technology, data, and equipment sharing)
