Meet all the endorsed Ocean Decade Actions

Connecting communities to Atlantic Ocean observing

National Oceanography Centre - United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK)

Expand the Global Ocean Observing System, Project, Skills, knowledge and technology for all

Ocean observing is a necessary service to fulfil our collective stewardship responsibility and understand the effects of climate change on human life, economic, and environmental wellbeing.

To fully realize this service, we must expand our view of the value of ocean observing and move towards a sustained observing system to deliver crucial information to stakeholders and policymakers. AtlantOS supports Atlantic basin scale implementation by identifying and fostering collaborative partnerships among user communities and ocean observing and data networks. AtlantOS is actively building formal relationships with international bodies and AtlantOS-connect will facilitate engagement with national and regional entities, connecting observing networks and providing visibility to the common challenges, needs and opportunities of Atlantic communities.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Observing Together: Meeting Stakeholder Needs and Making Every Observation Count
