The overall goal of this international technical workshop is to enhance the level of data including associated metadata identification to support global data harmonization for selected key marine debris indicators that will underpin the successful mitigation of plastic [...]
From satellite and in situ observation, to monitoring and forecasting services, to data access and cloud services, to marine and coastal derived applications and services, the case studies will highlight the European Union’s contribution along the value chain. Apply to develop one or several case studies for the following 4 topics: Marine Litter, Eutrophication, Fisheries Management and Arctic Sea Ice.
Description of task The task is to develop case studies on the Earth Observation (EO) value chain on ocean and coastal related themes for the EU4OceanObs project. From satellite and in situ observation, to monitoring and forecasting [...]
Themed Local Action in Support of Global Traction, the 5th Symposium was specifically geared towards improving GEO Blue Planet’s engagement with African nations in an effort to expand the Earth observation community of practice, strengthen local capacity and provide access to resources, tools and services related to the use of ocean and coastal observations for societal benefit.
An official UN Ocean Conference 2022 side event, the event focused on marine litter observation, remote sensing and modelling as key pillars for supporting the establishment of realistic plastic litter reduction targets and developing policies to reach these targets.
The conference will bring together governments, industry, academia, civil society, and all relevant stakeholders, to discuss the latest science, strengthen collaborations and find solutions to address the urgent, global problem of marine litter and plastic pollution.
The event builds on the UN Decade “Clean Ocean” Satellite activity One Integrated Marine Debris Observing System (IMDOS), and will focus on the need for monitoring marine litter as a global instrument to tackle global pollution.
This year's Sdymposium is specifically geared towards improving GEO Blue Planet’s engagement with African nations in an effort to expand the Earth observation community of practice, strengthen local capacity and provide access to resources, tools and services.
To sustain life and economic activity, the ocean must be clean. Stakeholders will collaborate to identify pollutants and their sources to the ocean by 2025, remove contaminants from the ocean by 2030 and support society’s transition to a [...]
The GEO Blue Planet EU coordinator co-hosted two side events during the All-Atlantic 2021 Conference. he side events brought experts and stakeholders together to discuss challenges and opportunities for addressing Sargassum and marine debris across the Atlantic Ocean.
