During the past decade, interdisciplinary process studies have been conducted in may regions of the world oceans. The focus of this review is on studies which have been deployed from multiple sampling platforms. These studies have led to increased understanding of ocean processes which are of interest for problems concerning 1) fundamental ocean optics, 2) remote sensing of the ocean, 3) the ocean's ecology and renewable resources, 4) the ocean's role in global climate change, and 5) pollution and its effects. Here we describe some of the methodologies which have enabled advances and provide brief summaries of a few studies in diverse geographical regions.
