First report of the JGOFS/LOICZ confidential margins task team
The Joint Global Ocean Flux Studies (JGOFS) and the Land Ocean Interactions in the Coastal Zone (LOICZ) are Core Projects of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme: A study of Global Change (IGBP). They both have a primary interest in material fluxes in the ocean. JGOFS focuses on carbon fluxes in the open ocean, with interest in the continental margins as inputs to the ocean. LOICZ focuses on the land-sea interface and the coastal zone, with interest in the shelf edge as a boundary of exchange with the open ocean.
