IOCCP: (i) Works with the ocean carbon research projects and broader international community to collect and compile information on current and planned ocean carbon observations and research activities, and develop and maintain a central international information center on ocean carbon research and observations. (ii) Provides an international forum for initiatives to promote high-quality observations needed to understand the ocean component of the global carbon cycle. (iii) Advises IOC, SCOR, OOPC, GOOS, GCOS, and JCOMM on observations and data products needed for large-scale monitoring of the global carbon cycle.|
