An official satellite activity of the UN Ocean Decade Lab "A clean ocean", the event attracted more than 200 partipants from 46 countries. Experts from different sectors and fields came together to share their knowledge and discuss the growing threat and multidimensional problem of marine debris to marine ecosystems, and ocean and coastal users.
This event will review the role Earth Observations play in monitoring, preparing for, and recovering from, marine hazards and what GEO can do to inform priorities and identify opportunities for future collaboration across GEO activities and regional GEOs working on this thematic.
The Copernicus Marine Service and Mercator Ocean International have just launched a new set of educational pages, presenting easy-to-understand information to unpack operational oceanography, the impacts of climate change on the ocean and the policies being put in place to protect the ocean.
The Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) presented its ocean-climate priorities at the 26th session of the UNFCCC Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland. GOOS co-chair Anya Waite (Ocean Frontiers Institute) presented GOOS priorities in the science pavilion as part of the GCOS Status Report 2021 and the Earth Information Day.
At the JPI Oceans scoping workshop on ocean carbon capacities in October 2021, the EU coordinator of the G7 FSOI Coordination Centre presented the G7 collaboration with the International Ocean Carbon Coordination Project (IOCCP) to develop an internationally agreed strategy for Surface Ocean CO2 monitoring.
This high level document summarises recommendations for sustainable ocean observation and management, and is the result of a cooperation between EuroSea and 9 other innovative European projects.
Bringing together the European players interested in and actively contributing to the Global Earth Observations System of Systems (GEOSS), the EuroGEO workshop 2021 focused on Earth Observation-based solutions to support the European Green Deal and shape the future development of Europe’s contribution to GEO.
This annual reference report provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art assessment on the current state, natural variations, and ongoing changes in the global ocean and marine environments in the face of climate change and anthropogenic threats, particularly for the year 2019.
This 2nd Ocean Decade Laboratory "A predicted ocean" served to address the need for more closely integrated observations and modelling, relevant collaborations around the world and connections to stakeholders and user communities.
The G7 FSOI Coordination Centre has published a summary report from the 2021 Working Group meeting that took place online from 28 to 30 June. The report outlines the major actions to be taken forward jointly by the G7 countries and the European Union to enhance global ocean observations.
