Forewarned is forearmed

Long-term ocean observations are critical for all areas of marine resource management, risk management and the monitoring of climate change and mitigation measures. European marine scientists are carrying out important work in this field, as a contribution to Global Earth Observation (GEO) systems and GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security). In particular, the MERSEA and MFSTEP projects launched under FP6 both aim to improve capacities for global and regional ocean monitoring and forecasting.
