This booklet serves as an introduction to the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study
(JGOFS). Efforts in researching global warming have been brought together in
an international research programme: the JGOFS under the auspices of the
Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR). JGOFS is an established core
project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP), the main
interdisciplinary and international framework for addressing the critical
unknowns related to global change.
