1 MyOcean Towards a European Ocean Monitoring Service MyOcean is an EU funded R&D project (FP7) which fits into the European Earth monitoring programme GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security). 9th July 2012 Project leader: National responsible: Vlado Malačič B. Petelin, M. Ličer, D. Žagar (FGG UNI-LJ)

2 A unique dynamic and 3D vision of the Ocean ANYWHERE (Global + 6 Regional Seas) FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP AT ANY TIME (past, present, future) REAL TIME or PAST PERIOD Ice Temperature Salinity Biogeochemical Sea Level Currents

3 Project Objectives & Areas of benefits What is the project designed to achieve? To deliver reliable and accurate 3D depictions of the whole ocean in the past (25 years), present (real time) and future (10 days), to support European/Member states decision makers in the Environment and Security fields to foster user applications related to the marine environment. Why is this project important for Europe? MyOcean gathers the best European skills, data and systems to offer state-of-the-art information on the ocean state and evolution. This is a unique and high-value service for public and private purposes. How does this project benefit European citizens? European citizens are all concerned by Environment and Security. Out of many areas of benefits, MyOcean services are useful for reinforcing safety at sea (offshore operations, search & rescue…) combatting oil spills, monitoring water quality, assessing environmental impact, delivering data for Climate Change scenarios, protecting living marine resources, harnessing thermal water energy predicting coastal erosion (…). How does the project achieve these goals (MV comment)? By organized collaboration among European partners 3

4 How does it work ? SYSTEM SERVICE DATA USER APPLICATIONS marine service observations per day from Space and Sea Production of Ocean observations, analysis and Forecasts (Models) Production of Ocean observations, analysis and Forecasts (Models) Maritime Safety Marine Resources Coastal Environment Weather/Climate Maritime Safety Marine Resources Coastal Environment Weather/Climate 9th July EC, Ljubljana

5 The MyOcean Service To describe the ocean To share & inform 350 marine experts in 29 countries 46 inter-connected systems 300 technical interfaces billions of ops/day on supercomputers MyOcean web portal : a sole data Access point. A catalogue of 239 products. Inspire directive compliant A service desk providing assistance and connecting users to experts. MyOcean website Quality Monitoring Information to citizen on the MyOcean IPhone app

6 9th July 2012 EC, Ljubljana 6 NIB-MBS as MyOcean partner Marine Biology Station of NIB participated in the project MyOcean with two work packages : WP9 – Cal/Val - calibration and validation of numerical models for the Mediterranean, providing: Daily averaged data of the oceanographic buoy Vida (temperature, salinity and velocity of sea currents) - operational since February 2010 (buoy is operational since 2002) Daily averaged results of the numerical model North Adriatic Princeton Ocean Model – NAPOM (temperature, salinity, velocity of sea currents and sea surface elevation at predefined stations) - operational since June 2011 WP18 – Marine Safety - prediction of the spread of oil spils in the Slovenian Sea through numerical models of NAPOM (NIB-MBS) and NAFTA (University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Civil and Geodetic Engineering)

7 9th July 2012 NIB-MBS as MyOcean 2 partner Marine Biology Station of NIB participates in the project MyOcean 2 in a large WP 3: Sub-WP 3.5 National Systems in the Mediterranean- calibration and validation of numerical models for the Mediterranean: Task 3.5.3: integration of MyOcean2 products in the National System, (feedback by User Assessment Reports (UAR)) of usefullness of MyOcean products) Task 3.5.4: external validation system of MyOcean, based on in situ data (buoy Vida) and high-resolution models products (NAPOM, NAFTA 3D) provided by National Systems. 7 EC, Ljubljana

8 9th July 2012 EC, Ljubljana NIB-MBS as MyOcean partner MyOcean Start date: ; End date: ; Duration:39 months TOTAL Project cost: ; EU Funding: , 61% No. of PARTNERS: 60 NIB-MBS cost: ; NIB-MBS Funding: ; EU: MyOcean 2 Start date: ; End date: ; Duration:30 months TOTAL Project cost: ; EU Funding: , 68% No. of PARTNERS: 59 NIB-MBS cost: ; NIB-MBS Funding: ; EU: EURO, 75 % 8

9 MyOcean WP9 Cal/Val, NAPOM, Oceanographic buoy Vida 9th July EC, Ljubljana Co-financed by the Slovenian Environment Agency & Slovenian Research Agency

10 MyOcean WP9 Cal/Val, forecasting model NAPOM 9th July 2012 NAPOM Northern Adriatic Princeton Ocean Model ARSO + NIB Malačič V., Petelin B., Vodopivec M., 2012, JGR (C), 117, C06032 EC, Ljubljana 10

11 MyOcean WP9 Cal/Val, forecasting model NAPOM 9th July 2012 EC, Ljubljana 11 M. Ličer, B. Petelin, M. Vodopivec Developed by NIB, Running at Slovenian Environment Agency

12 MyOcean WP3, forecasting model NAPOM and CYCOFOS with NAFTA 3D oil spill model 9th July 2012 EC, Ljubljana NAPOM (ARSO&NIB) ASFS MFS (INGV Bologna) Ličer M. (NIB),Žagar D. (FGG, UNI-LJ) CYCOFOS (Cyprus OC) ALERMO (Univ. Athens) MFS (INGV Bologna) 12

13 Conclusions MyOcean 2 is one of a few projects that had been only slightly reduced MyOcean a successful project: delivers about 215 oceanographic products available through a single catalogue it is open and free We are worried about our possibility to work on MyOcean 2 in 2013 and later: Funding of maintenance/repair of Vida after five years of continuous operation (65 k), out of scope of MyOcean 2 Heavy situation in a country lack of financing human potential - could affect the work on MyOcean 2 13EC, Ljubljana Up to date the MyOcean (2) project is the best scientific/technological European umbrella for coastal ocean studies. Therefore: we will fight and accomplish what we promissed
