[01-Jan-16] Logo for the Korea - United States Ocean Color (KORUS-OC) field campaign. KORUS-OC is an oceanographic field study being conducted in conjunction with the air quality campaign, KORUS-AQ. Led by NASA and the Korean Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST), KORUS-OC will focus on the links between satellite- and ship-based measurements of ocean color, biology and biogeochemistry, as well as atmospheric composition in coastal waters adjacent to the Republic of Korea. KORUS-OC's hands-on training will build stronger ocean optics capabilities among participating scientists while providing oceanographic validation data for the Korean Geostationary Ocean Color Imager (GOCI) satellite.
