Environmental policies focus on protecting habitats valuable for their biodiversity, as well as producing energy in cleaner ways. The establishment of Marine Protected Area (MPA) networks and installing Offshore Wind Farms (OWF) are important ways to achieve these goals. The protection and management of marine biodiversity has focused on placing MPAs in areas important for biodiversity. This has p ...

"MyOcean is the first EU project dedicated to the implementation of the GMES Marine Core Service for ocean monitoring and forecasting. The consortium is preparing a new FP7 proposal to expand the pre-operational service and move to full operations in 2014. Due to the nature of the call, R&D activities are limited to short-term developments closely linked to the operational needs. We propose a proj ...

CARBOCHANGE will provide the best possible process-based quantification of net ocean carbon uptake under changing climate conditions using past and present ocean carbon cycle changes for a better prediction of future ocean carbon uptake. We will improve the quantitative understanding of key biogeochemical and physical processes through a combination of observations and models. We will upscale new ...

Gliders for Research, Ocean Observation and Management (GROOM)

Start date: 01 Oct 2011, End date: 31 Dec 2014,

Underwater gliders are intelligent and affordable platforms, useful for long-term, multi parameter marine observations. Because of their remotely controlled navigational capabilities and the high spatial and temporal resolution of their measurements in real-time, gliders have been identified to fill gaps existing in the existing ocean observing systems. Along with there rapidly growing importance ...

"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 ...

"The objective of the MAIRES proposal is to develop methodologies for satellite monitoring of Arctic glaciers, sea ice and icebergs. Methodologies to retrieve quantitative information from the ESA and RKA data will be developed, and examples of satellite derived products for each of the three thematic areas will be presented. The main satellite data will be Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), optical ...

The use of satellite radar data to detect oil at sea started in the early 90-ties. A first generation service has been developed through activities like research and development, demonstrations, trials and end user feedback. The improvement of the service has been on-going under the support of national and European (ESA, EC) R&D programs. Up till 2005, the oil spill detection activities were stro ...

Thermohaline Overturning - at Risk? (THOR)

Start date: 01 Dec 2008, End date: 30 Nov 2012,

"THOR will establish an operational system that will monitor and forecast the development of the North Atlantic THC on decadal time scales and access its stability and the risk of a breakdown in a changing climate. Together with pre-existing data sets, ongoing observations within the project will allow precise quantitative monitoring of the Atlantic THC and its sources. This will, for the first ti ...

MyOcean is THE PROJECT to set up infrastructures, services and resources to prepare the operational deployment of first Marine Core Services. My Ocean answers to the topic SPA.2007.1.1.01 - development of upgraded capabilities for existing GMES fast-track services and related (pre)operational services. MyOcean is proposed by a consortium of 67 partners spread in maritime countries: - federated aro ...
