1 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Marine Data Challenges: From Observations to Information Operational Oceanography by Hans Dahlin EuroGOOS

2 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Operational Oceanography ? EuroGOOS definition: Operational Oceanography can be defined as the activity of systematic and long-term routine measurements of the seas and oceans and atmosphere, and their rapid interpretation and dissemination. Important products derived from operational oceanography are: o nowcasts providing the most usefully accurate description of the present state of the sea including living resources o forecasts providing continuous forecasts of the future condition of the sea for as far ahead as possible o hindcasts assembling long term data sets which will provide data for description of past states, and time series showing trends and changes Operational Oceanography – User-driven Oceanography Nothing New !

3 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Shipping and tide – hundreds of years The ”disappering water” – Water level monitoring 1731 Need and exchange of loggbook information – origin of WMO Periodically disappering herring – initiated ICES and operational monitoring programmes, Partly still on-going OSPAR Convention Area 1960-ies and 70-ies Problems with oil accidents, dumping of industrial waste, eutrofication,.. – The marine environmental convenstions were established and these introduced operational water quality observations Algal Bloom problems increased during the 1980-ies

4 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende There are many more exampels of sustained operational oceanography that have emerged from user requests. What’s then the challenge?

5 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Observed Data are the Trouth and most of Ocean Space is undersampled in relation to the required information

6 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Challenge 1:To make the observation to find sustained resources to make the correct observations to produce the required information to resolve temporal and spatial scales to find accurate, robust and affordable technology... Challenge 2: To save the observation secure storage standardised description of variables standardised description of quality... Challenge 3: To make the observation accessible fixed rules for all users to make the data available in a timely manner standardised meta information...

7 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Cost efficiancy is necessary

8 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Challenge 4: To produce information and services jointly at European and regional scales reduce cost best practice standardised products...

9 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende EuroGOOS Goals (1996) 1.Building on Scientific Success Time to get the full benefit of European investments in basic and strategic research 2.Creating New Operational Marine Services Create new businesses and new jobs in Europe 3.Developing a Global System Through European collaboration wield influance on a global scale, and to meet public expectations

11 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Examples of European projects with EuroGOOS/EuroGOOS members and regional partners involvement....., EDIOS, MAMA, PAPA, ARENA, ESEAS, MarineXML, GRAND, ODON, MerSea, Ferrybox, ENCORA, MarinERA, ASCOBOS, SEPRISE, SeaDataNet, ECOOP,..

12 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Implementation of the Marine GMES, Global monitoring for environment and security EuroGOOS has been involved in the preparations for the marine part of GMES since EuroGOOS has actively participated in workshops, meetings, panels and projects. The EuroGOOS regions are strongly involved in the implementation process through projects as MerSea, ECOOP, and soon MyOcean

13 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende The GMES Marine Fast Track service The main challenge to implement, and to continue to develop

14 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende From Observations to Information/Services Requirement Production

15 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende To summarise: We have the concept - the challenges are to make the necessary observations –save the observations –make the observations accessible as far as possible jointly produce required information and services understand user requirements....then we can continue to develop the science

16 Hans Dahlin, EuroGOOS, st Marine Board Forum, Oostende Thank you for listening!
