Earth’s Living Ocean: Future Ocean Biology and Chemistry From Space – Advance Plan of 2007
1. How are ocean ecosystems and the biodiversity they support influenced by climate and environmental variability and change, and how will these changes occur over time?
2. How do carbon and other elements transition between ocean pools and pass through the Earth System, and how do biogeochemical fluxes impact the ocean and Earth's climate over time?
3. How (and why) is the diversity and geographical distribution of coastal marine habitats changing, and what are the implications for the well-being of human society?
4. How do hazards and pollutants impact the hydrography and biology of the coastal zone? How do they affect us, and can we mitigate their effects?
Biogeochemical Oceanographic Properties: Organic and inorganic particle abundance and size; Plant species-specific bio- and chemical markers (e.g., calcite); Carbon species; Export carbon; Photosynthesis; Coastal processes; Land-ocean carbon transport; Air-sea interaction
Biological Oceanographic Properties: Photosynthesis; Phytoplankton (plant) biomass; Plant physiology/growth rates; Harmful algal blooms; Plant functional groups (nitrogen fixers, carbon exporters, calcium carbonate, microbial loop); Ecosystems and habitat health; Climate-biology interactions

1999 U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Plan:
What has happened to the carbon dioxide that has already been emitted by human activities (past anthropogenic CO2)?
What will be the future atmospheric CO2 concentration trajectory resulting from both past and future emissions?
Current version for new Plan:
How do natural processes and human actions affect the carbon cycle, on land, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans?
How do policy and management decisions affect the levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane?
How are ecosystems, species, and resources impacted by increasing greenhouse gas concentrations, the associated changes in climate, and carbon management decisions?
