Euro-Argo Improvements for the GMES Marine Service (E-AIMS)

Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Dec 31, 2015,

"Argo is an international array of 3000 profiling floats that measure temperature and salinity throughout the deep global oceans, down to 2,000 metres. It is the single most important global in-situ observing system for the GMES Marine Service. Argo provides critical observations of the ocean interior that are required to constrain, together with satellite observations, GMES Marine Service modelli ...

Marine life makes a substantial contribution to the economy and society of Europe. VECTORS will elucidate the drivers, pressures and vectors that cause change in marine life, the mechanisms by which they do so, the impacts that they have on ecosystem structures and functioning, and on the economics of associated marine sectors and society. VECTORS will particularly focus on causes and consequences ...

"Environmental change and climate change in particular, are expected to be most pronounced in the polar regions. For this reason, a multi-disciplinary research infrastructure covering all important elements of the coupled Earth System in the Arctic is a very valuable tool to quantify the ongoing global change and to verify the capability of Earth System models to predict future changes. The propos ...

Monitoring and Evaluation of Spatially Managed Areas (MESMA) (MESMA)

Start date: Nov 1, 2009, End date: Oct 31, 2013,

The increasing pressures upon the marine realm call for a well planned approach of further spatial development of this area. An ecosystem-based approach to fisheries, the increasing demand for sustainable energy, coastal defence systems, building materials and safe transport routes and the need to protect marine habitats and species all compete for the same valuable space. At the same time climate ...

TOWARDS AN ALLIANCE OF EUROPEAN RESEARCH FLEETS (EUROFLEETS)

Start date: Sep 1, 2009, End date: Aug 31, 2013,

"The quality of the infrastructures available for marine research affects directly Europe research performance. So marine research infrastructures are considered as key elements of the European Strategy for Marine Research under development. A coherent pan-European approach with enhanced partnership in investment, development and usage of fleets, will have a significant impact to better meet the d ...

Arctic Tipping Points (ATP)

Start date: Feb 1, 2009, End date: Jan 31, 2012,

The broad interdisciplinary consortia assembled in the Arctic Tipping Points (ATP) project will be managed (WP1) to identify the elements of the Arctic marine ecosystem likely to show abrupt changes in response to climate change, and establish the levels of the corresponding climate drivers inducing the regime shift for these tipping elements. ATP will evaluate the consequences of crossing those t ...
