EuroGOOS is an association of national governmental agencies, research organizations, and private companies, committed to oceanography within the context of the intergovernmental Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). EuroGOOS has today 44 members from 18 European countries providing operational oceanographic services (from observations to applications) and carrying out marine research. EuroGOOS goals are to identify strategies, cooperate, co-produce, and promote the operational oceanography value for society.
EuroGOOS members are involved in the development of the ocean observing system from global, to regional (Europe) and coastal scales. These activities are developed within the framework of the European Ocean Observing System, EOOS.
EuroGOOS members also develop and operate coastal forecasting systems that use the Copernicus Marine Service models as a boundary condition to provide fine scale ocean analyses and forecasts in the coastal zone.
