The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) project is a six-year initiative funded by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Polar Programs and headquartered at Princeton University. The project was launched in September 2014 with an initial commitment of $3.5 million per year over 6 years ($21 million dollars total).
SOCCOM’s mission is to drive a transformative shift in the scientific and public understanding of the role of the vast Southern Ocean in climate change and biogeochemistry.
