Pacific Ocean Monitoring

Ocean Facts!
The first oceanographic observation along Line P in the Pacific Ocean was taken on December 19, 1949.

In the Pacific zone, the Line P Time Series is one of the longest running oceanographic monitoring programs. Due to the long term nature of this program, oceanographic changes can be evaluated, which is especially relevant when monitoring global climate change.

The following are other oceanographic observation programs in the Pacific zone.
