TONGA is a multidisciplinary 3-year project dedicated to the study of the control of ocean productivity and carbon sequestration driven by micronutrients from hydrothermal origin. It involves 85 scientists from 19 international institutions and is based both on a 37-day oceanographic cruise in the Western Tropical South Pacific and modelling work.
