The NOAA CalCOFI Genomics Project (NCOG): a NOAA-JCVI-SIO Partnership began seawater sample collection on CalCOFI 1402SH. Both RNA and DNA seawater samples are collected from 10m and chlorophyll maximum depth (the depth of highest chlorophyll concentration which can vary from station to station) on daily noon primary productivity stations and several other specific stations (see map). NCOG samples have been collected on all cruises since Feb 2014 CalCOFI 1402SH.
