AtlantOS proposes the integration of ocean observing activates across all disciplines for the Atlantic, considering European as well as non-European partners. The proposal applies the Framework for Ocean Observing to the observing of the Atlantic.
The overarching goal of AtlantOS is the integration of the so far loosely-coordinated set of existing ocean observing activities to a sustainable, efficient, and fit-for-purpose Integrated Atlantic Ocean Observing System (IAOOS). The IAOOS is to form the ocean in-situ observing backbone of the Copernicus Marine Monitoring system, which is the marine part of the European Earth Observation Programme.
This project has received funding from the European Commission - Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 633211.
