R2R is the NSF-supported repository for environmental sensor data routinely acquired by U.S. oceanographic research vessels. The research fleet supports hundreds of expeditions around the world each year, ranging from oceans to coasts and estuaries to the Great Lakes. R2R works with an extensive network of partner repositories to link original field data from both sensors and samples, post-field products, global syntheses, and journal articles.
Bob Arko is a research engineer at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York. He is Co-PI and Technical Director of the R2R program.
