The DISCO project data are now available from BODC on CDROM. The CDROM is available free of charge for academic research purposes.

DISCO was an integrated, multidisciplinary Lagrangian study of the biogeochemical cycling of dimethyl sulphide within a bloom of Emiliania huxleyi, a coccolithophorid alga.

The data were gathered on a cruise in the northern North Sea during June and July 1999. BODC provided data management services to the project and collated the available data.

The research involved 28 scientists and technicians from eight separate institutions and was funded principally by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the UK Defence Evaluation Research Agency (now QinetiQ).
