KORUS-OC Field Campaign View Slideshow »
Korea - United States Ocean Color (KORUS-OC) is an oceanographic field study conducted in conjunction with the Korea - United States Air Quality (KORUS-AQ) campaign. 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, along with the composition of 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 satellite. The field campaign took place from May 20 to June 6, 2016.
