Cross-Atlantic Cooperation

Susan K. Avery, WHOI: Irminger Sea Workshop

Changing north atlantic changing societal interaction requires new science approaches

Changing North Atlantic, changing societal interaction, requires new science approaches

  • Drivers

    • CO2 injection/uptake – 3D thermohaline circulation – biogeochemical changes - ecosystems

    • Freshening and warming: Arctic-N. Atlantic

    • Economic opportunity; sustainability

    • Societal risks and resilience

  • Synthetic, integrative approach

    • Ocean system science

    • Virtual observatories/organizations

    • Smart models

Building blocks

Building blocks

  • Galway report – focusing scientific energy in N. Atlantic

  • Canada/Germany: Labrador Sea (VITALS)

  • European nation observing chains; Horizon 2020

  • US

    • OOI-NSF


    • Bloom experiment – NASA

Creating the integration and coordination

Creating the integration and coordination

  • Virtual organizations

    • SAVI – NSF (OSNAP): creating the VO Hub

    • Coopeus (Interoperability – NSF/Europe)

    • Rapid Array – UK investment in observing array; connecting meridional overturning circulation further south – Virtual observatories

The galway declaration sets the stage for trans atlantic cooperation the vision

The Galway Declaration sets the stage for trans-Atlantic cooperation: The vision

  • Enhanced predictive capability for risks and changes in North Atlantic ocean basin

  • Multi-platform ocean observing and forecasting system providing real time data and long time series

  • Maps seafloor and water column tectonics and ecosystems

  • Enables safe operations at sea, offshore, and coasts

  • Strengthens and seamlessly integrates collaborative science and operations between Europe, Canada, and US

  • Supports the development, through partnerships, for sustainable socio-economic growth

  • Revolutionizes our understanding of the role of the North Atlantic in our earth system

  • Promotes ocean literacy and stakeholder engagement and inspires and educates the next generation of trans-disciplinary scientists and engineers.

Galway declaration notes the ocean observing challenge for the north atlantic basin

Galway Declaration notes the ocean observing challenge for the North Atlantic Basin

  • Patchwork of ocean and coastal observing capabilities

    • Provides a basis for a fit for purpose ocean and coastal observation and forecasting infrastructure

    • Lacks the required spatial and temporal coverage, inter-operability and the full range of chemical and biological sensors needed to realize and deliver the shared vision

  • Recommends Trans-Atlantic workshops to develop program that implements vision

The blue growth components

The Blue Growth components

  • Sustainably exploiting the diversity of marine life(56 M€)

  • Addressing the new offshore challenge(26 M€)

  • Ocean observing systems and technologies(30 M€)

  • Integration, coordination, and cross-cuts (33M€)

    • Economics of marine research and markets

    • Ocean literacy

    • Atlantic ocean cooperative research alliance

    • European polar research cooperation

    • Healthy and productive seas

The virtual organization coordination collaboration system science

The Virtual Organization: Coordination/collaboration/system science

  • A group of individuals whose members and resources may be dispersed geographically and institutionally, yet who function as a coherent unit through the use of cyberinfrastructure and informatics

  • Typically enabled by, and provides shared and often real-time access to, centralized or distributed resources, such as community specific tools, applications, data, and sensors, and experimental operations.
