Kostas Nittis – MedGOOS

marine observations a challenging topic
Marine Observations: a challenging topic
  • Monitoring strategy – scientific context (why)
  • Proper planning: what – when – where(but with lot of surprises ….)
  • Technological challenges: sensors, platforms, IT, telecommunications (e.g. deep sea, bio-chem)
  • Quality assurance (at all levels)
  • Resources - sustainability
  • Transform observations into info products(policy, industry, society, science)

First Marine Board Forum15 May 2008 – Oostende (Belgium)

  • National – local activities
  • Large programs (WOCE, …)
  • Operational monitoring (GOOS): regional – global – data sharing
  • New initiatives: GEO, GMES, EMODNet(EuroARGO, EuroSITES, EMSO, ESONET, MERSEA, SeaDataNet, …)

Window of opportunity !!!

  • Need to bridge the gap; produce also on behalf of those who cant; build the capacity
