Good quality measurements of physical (e.g. sea level and currents) and biogeochemical (e.g. dissolved oxygen and nutrients) variables are the basis for our understanding of ocean processes affecting many human activities at sea (e.g. coastal management, fisheries, search and rescue operations). These measurements can be made by different types of platforms.
At this meeting, EuroGOOS task teams will present three examples of mature technologies delivering observations of a wide range of ocean variables at different spatial and temporal coverage, as well as their strengths and challenges. Erik Buch, Glenn Nolan, and Patrick Gorringe will attend from the EuroGOOS office.
