BOGAR project represents a groundbreaking oceanographic solution, aiming to establish an autonomous coastal observation system that provides high-quality, open oceanographic data to address Climate Change challenges.

BOGAR employs a mobile infrastructure with advanced biogeochemical sensors to create an integrated ocean observation network in the Galician coast. Utilizing cutting-edge sensors and embracing big data, BOGAR reevaluates traditional climatic measurements and focuses on quantifying the net flow of CO2 in coastal waters to achieve climate neutrality by 2050. Collaborating with public and private stakeholders, BOGAR democratizes sustainable ocean observation by implementing its initiative during sailing. BOGAR is compromised with FAIR data—findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable- and seeks to foster innovation through private collaborations, sponsorship, and citizen science projects, emphasizing its role in advancing oceanographic research and sustainability.
