EU H2020 AtlantOS, April 2015-March 2018
The AtlantOS project aimed to help establish a sustainable, efficient, and fit-for-purpose integrated Atlantic ocean observing system. The project facilitated the following research and innovation activities to underpin this objective:
- 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 was strongly engaged in the project, as both partner, member of the steering group, and of the Atlantic Blue Print team. EuroGOOS worked 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. EuroGOOS also strongly contributed to the final AtlantOS event at the IOC headquarters (March 2019) and the project’s visibility at the OceanObs’19 conference (September 2019).
This Dashboard, designed under WP9.1- System monitoring/evaluation, is a web tool, developed in collaboration with EMODnet Physics, to monitor the operational monitoring capacity of the data networks and providers in the Atlantic Ocean.
