Ocean Monitoring and Prediction Network for the Sustainable Development of the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean (OMPNETGC) 800 544 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Consorcio de Investigación del Golfo de México (CIGOM) – Mexico

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.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Ocean Observing Co-Design: evolving ocean observing for a sustainable future

Start Date: 01/06/2021
End Date: 31/12/2030
