Meet all the endorsed Ocean Decade Actions

Integrated ocean observing across the Northwest Atlantic

North-eastern Regional Association of Coastal Ocean Observing Systems (NERACOOS)

Develop a sustainable and equitable ocean economy, Expand the Global Ocean Observing System, Increase community resilience to ocean hazards, North Atlantic Ocean, Project, Skills, knowledge and technology for all

An interconnected system to track environmental change in the Northwest Atlantic, from the Arctic to the Gulf of Maine will be established.

The oceanographic influence of climate-driven changes in the Arctic extends well into mid-latitudes in this region, with distributions of many species shifting northward against current flow. By convening agencies, institutions, indigenous communities, and private sector stakeholders from all nations in the region, we can track and communicate key environmental attributes, including marine carbon stores, with greater speed and at scale. This can serve as a model for multinational partnerships for other ocean areas grappling with environmental change.
