About Us

The Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling (SOCCOM) program is a six-year initiative funded by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Polar Programs and headquartered at Princeton University. The project was launched in September 2014.

Housed at Princeton University and administered by the Princeton Environmental Institute, SOCCOM draws on the strengths of teams of investigators across the U.S. as well as participating in international observational and simulation efforts.

SOCCOM is supported by the National Science Foundation under NSF Award PLR-1425989, with additional support from NOAA and NASA.
