From marine observations and data to information, knowledge and blue growth: towards an integrated end-to-end European Ocean Observing System (EOOS)

From marine observations and data to information, knowledge and blue growth: towards an integrated end-to-end European Ocean Observing System (EOOS)

Monday, 19 May, 2014 - 11:00 to 12:30
Venue
KAISEN SAAL
Theme(s)

This workshop will introduce, explore and define key components of a fully functional end-to-end system for European ocean observation, emphasising the need for close collaboration between science and industry for new technologies and new services in support of Blue Growth. It will provide insight in key efforts along the lifepath from marine observations and data up to information, products and knowledge for users such as the European Marine Observation and Data network (EMODnet) and the European Atlas of the Seas. It will showcase new sea-basin level approaches to evaluate marine data availability and observation capacity from a use-perspective and look ahead at current bottlenecks and future requirements.

Moderator: Erik Buch (EuroGOOS Chair): Introduction to the European Ocean Observing System (EOOS)
