Create a digital representation of the Ocean, Expand the Global Ocean Observing System, Increase community resilience to ocean hazards, North Atlantic Ocean, Project, Protect and restore ecosystems and biodiversity, Skills, knowledge and technology for all, Understand and beat marine pollution, Unlock ocean-based solutions to climate change

We propose to develop a network of ocean observation systems and regional forecasting models of ocean circulation, to provide baseline information on the oceanographic, biogeochemical and ecological state, changes and trends of the large ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

  • To assess the vulnerability of key species and marine habitats to extreme natural events and economic developmental pressures, such as large oil spills, and the emerging long-term trends of deoxygenation, ocean acidification, harmful algal blooms, warming of the surface ocean, and to provide information, knowledge and tools for mitigation and adaptation strategies;
  • To enhance capacity building and inspire the next generation of scientists, policy makers and stakeholders in the greater Caribbean region for the sustainable development of the ocean.
