An expert workshop on improving biogenic products to advance modelling of ocean carbon sequestration in the Arctic was held from 13-14 December 2023 in Sopot, Poland. Hosted by the Institute of Oceanology Polish Academy of Sciences, this [...]
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 [...]
Launch of EU4OceanObs communication campaign on understanding and monitoring marine biology and ecology, with spotlight on the European Marine Biological Resource Centre (EMBRC), to better protect and restore marine environments and biodiversity, and ensure the sustainable use of marine resources.
With the coastal zone under increasing pressure from climate change and development, informed policy and management has never been more important. Thanks to the efforts of Copernicus and the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet), Earth observations from satellites and from sensors in the sea are helping decision-makers gather the evidence they need to create effective strategies.
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.
High-level officials, ocean researchers, policymakers and other stakeholders, including Early Career Ocean Professionals (ECOPs) gathered in Galway, Ireland from 5 to 6 July 2023 to commemorate 10 years of the Galway Statement.
by harmonising data, standardising monitoring methods, leveraging technology, and harnessing the power of a global community, the Integrated Marine Debris Observing System (IMDOS) aims to support and strengthen marine debris research and inform action to this growing global concern.
EU4OceanObs is a proud sponsor of the Cap Optimist, an extraordinary challenge of six waterwomen crossing the Pacific Ocean on a paddleboard. Using the sheer strength of their arms and exceptional courage and determination, these wonder-women set [...]
