* Bermuda Atlantic Time-series Station (BATS) is one of two U.S. JGOFS sites responsible for conducting long term time-series measurements of biogeochemical parameters. Both BATS and the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) have been collecting a variety of biological, chemical and physical data at each of their respective sites in order to better understand time-varying variabilty of the open ocean. These data are used to assess the role of the ocean in large-scale processes of global change. The PI's on this project include myself, Nick Bates, Deborah Steinberg, Anthony Knap and Anthony Michaels.
