The focus of the program “CARIACO Oceanographic Time Series” is the collection of a set of oceanographic, biogeochemical and ecological observations at a specific location (10° 30'N, 64° 40'W), in the deepest area of the Eastern basin of the Cariaco Basin, off the coast of Venezuela. The CARIACO program was established in 1995 with the key objective to contribute critical data for monitoring the carbon cycle and biogeochemistry in the seas of the globe, understand the impact of climate change on biodiversity and regional marine ecology, as also supporting research on past climatic changes. Through the collection of long-term ecosystem observations of the Cariaco Basin with data of very high quality at a reasonable time, the scientific community of Venezuela contributes to the knowledge of mankind in these areas, taking scientific advantage of this particular site. CARIACO is one of the three longest oceanographic biogeochemical time series stations established around the world. The ot.....
