The Biogeochemical Ocean Flux Study (BOFS) was a Community Research Project of the Marine and Atmospheric Sciences Directorate of the Natural Environment Research Council. It was hosted by the Plymouth Marine Laboratory from April 1987 to April 1992, with a bridging to April 1993 for cruises to the Southern Oceans. The North Atlantic field program was conducted between April 1989 and July 1991.
