EU H2020 AtlantOS, April 2015-March 2018
The AtlantOS project aims to help establish a sustainable, efficient, and fit-for-purpose integrated Atlantic ocean observing system. This will be achieved through research and innovation activities focused on:
- Defining requirements and systems design;
- Improving the readiness of observing networks and data systems;
- Engaging stakeholders around the Atlantic;
- Strengthening Europe’s contribution to the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS), the GEO’s Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), and the emerging GEO Blue Planet initiative.
EuroGOOS is strongly engaged in the project, as both partner, member of the steering group and of the AtlantOS Blue Print task team. EuroGOOS works in several project’s work packages, responsible, among other tasks, for the gap analysis, cost and feasibility study, and a study on the sustainability of the proposed integrated Atlantic observing system.
