The G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative (FSOI) and the Biology and Ecosystem Panel of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) held a workshop entitled, “Towards a global marine plankton observing network: development of a [...]
We invite experts in observing or/and modelling approaches and Arctic ecosystems to join an action organised by the EU-funded projects ECOTIP and EU4OceanObs towards advancing modelling carbon sequestration in the Arctic. The action has 3 phases and the final goal of publishing a community-perspective article.
With marine life playing such a pivotal role in ocean health and providing a host of benefits for the planet people, data on life below the surface can help drive informed decision-making. Across the European UnionU, research infrastructure, large-scale research projects, and intergovernmental initiatives are harnessing marine life data observations for a healthier ocean future.
By enhancing international collaboration and coordination, and providing advice and recommendations to the G7, the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative is supporting actions to strengthen and sustain ocean observations for a more sustainable ocean future.
At the UNESCO Integrated Ocean Carbon Research workshop in Brussels, international experts, researchers, and EU Commission policymakers gathered to drive an integrated approach to ocean carbon research that supports effective climate policies for a more sustainable future.
The G7 Ministers of Climate, Energy and the Environment met in April 2023 in Sapporo. The meeting gathered Ministers from the Group of 7 (Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and the European Union) as well as guest organisations and countries.
The European Marine Board held a two-day workshop in mid-March 2023 to discuss future climate scenarios in 2035 and future capacity and capabilities of the European Ocean Observing and Forecasting System to meet information and data needs.
MARCO-BOLO project launched to better understand marine biodiversity decline and restore ocean health
Discover MARCO-BOLO, a project funded by the European Union, working to structure and strengthen European coastal and marine biodiversity observation capabilities, linking them to global efforts to understand biodiversity decline and restore ocean health.
February 2023 saw the kick-off of a new European funded project called OceanICU - Improving Carbon Understanding. OceanICU will address limitations in our ability to measure and model the ocean carbon sink, with a focus on estimating the significance of the biological pump and human activities including fishing, energy and mineral extraction.
Monitoring zooplankton and their changing dynamics due to ocean warming can improve our understanding of marine ecosystems under a changing climate and better inform ocean conservation actions.
