Solutions for Cost-effective Ocean Observation (SCOOPp) 1000 1500 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

SMHI, the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute – Sweden

The SCOOPp project aims to provide a coordination focal-point for initiatives that enable cost-effective observation and a directory for end-users to access information about suitable technologies, instrumentation and sampling schemes.

It will allow a wide-range of stakeholders to identify technologies that are suitable to support marine and coastal management aligning with the sustainable development goals and other policy targets. Initially, the concept will be demonstrated at the scale of pilot sites, but the legacy will be a directory of cost-effective observation technologies and methodologies / best practices that can be widely deployed to benefit coastal resilience globally, particularly in nations with funding challenges and limited capacity. In the longer-term, this will contribute to sustained observations of the coastal ocean that are vital both to the global scientific community and also to local stakeholders to plan, mitigate and adapt to climate change.
