The Global Coastal Ocean Experiment is an initiative of the CoastPredict Programme of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development 2021-2030 (UN Ocean Decade). GlobalCoast is a central framework for the coordination and practical implementation of the CoastPredict Programme.
GlobalCoast will coordinate implementation and integration of the science and technology advances from the CoastPredict focus areas in a range of regions using best practice principles in ocean observing, data management, modeling and co-design. This will provide advanced knowledge and innovative products and services to support coastal community resilience, and will develop the basis to re-characterize the Global Coastal Ocean.
The GlobalCoast survey is seeking to collect expressions of interest to lead or collaborate on Pilot Sites will be selected within regions of the global coastal ocean. These regions have specific large scale oceanographic regimes that might contain a number of different coastal, hydrological and ecosystem regimes. The selected Pilot Sites will be implemented by the CoastPredict Programme.
