 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Around European coastal seas, the number of marine observing systems is quickly increasing under the pressure of both monitoring requirements and oceanographic research. Present demands for such systems include reliable, high-quality and comprehensive observations, automated platforms and sensors systems, as well as autonomy over long time periods. In-situ data collected, combined with remote sensing and models output, contribute to detect, understand and forecast the most crucial coastal processes over extensive areas within the various national and regional marine environments.

Coastal observations are an important part of the marine research puzzle of activities and applications. However significant heterogeneity exists in Europe concerning technological design of observing systems, measured parameters, practices for maintenance and quality control, as well as quality standards for sensors and data exchange. Up to now, the expansion of “coastal observatories” has been driven by domestic interests and mainly undertaken through short-term research projects. Therefore the main challenge for the research community is now to increase the coherence and the sustainability of these dispersed infrastructures by addressing their future within a shared pan-European framework.

This is the main objective of JERICO, which proposes a Pan European approach for a European coastal marine observatory network, integrating infrastructure and technologies such as moorings, drifters, ferrybox and gliders. Networking activities will lead to the definitions of best practices for design, implementation, maintenance and distribution of data of coastal observing systems, as well as the definition of a quality standard. Harmonisation and strengthening coastal observation systems within EuroGOOS regions will be sought.

Unique twin Trans National Access experiments will be carried out in order to reveal the potential of datasets used in synergy. Central coastal infrastructure in Europe will be opened for international research. This will among other benefits GMES and European contribution to climate change research.

New joint research will be conducted in order to identify new and strategic technologies to be implemented in the next generation European coastal observatories. Focus is given on emerging technologies and the biochemical compartment.

JERICO intends to contribute to the international and global effort on climate change research (GEOSS), to provide coastal data inputs for operational ocean observing and forecasting, and also to answer to some of the needs of the environmental research and societal communities.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Building a joint European research infrastructure for coastal observatories will help researchers and governments study biodiversity and climate change. It will also assist in managing European seas' resources.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

Global warming and environmental pressures are endangering not only Europe's coasts but the habitats and human development around them. For Europe to succeed in monitoring its seas and coasts effectively, and to produce policies that will address these pressures, the continent's coastal observatories must join forces and work closely together. This is the purpose of the EU-funded project 'Towards a joint European research infrastructure network for coastal observatories' (JERICO).

The project is bringing together key European coastal observatory operators by streamlining the common use of resources and facilities to improve crucial research and monitoring networks. It is encouraging joint research initiatives and standardisation through a unified European organisation that consolidates and harmonises fragmented coastal observing activities.

In more specific terms, the project is working on defining a common vision for coastal observatories, based on interoperability, knowledge sharing and training supported by dialogue with industry and policymakers. It is promoting collaboration with other infrastructures and European projects, in addition to developing international cooperation and providing transnational access to observatory infrastructure and mobile coastal observing systems (gliders).

Already, the project team has defined a preliminary roadmap for the future and has documented existing observatories that would join the initiative. It has conducted best practice workshops on fixed platforms and gliders, studying key topics such as calibration practices, biofouling protection, remote sensing and observation systems. The team also focused on managing data and establishing an http://www.jerico-fp7.eu (online platform) for JERICO with relevant documents and links.

These achievements and the actions that are expected to follow will give strong support for monitoring the environment, surveying biodiversity and understanding climate change to better predict related impacts. The project will also help facilitate the sustainable exploitation of marine resources, in addition to contributing to employment through education, training and technological innovation. JERICO is certainly a step in the right direction for furthering the sustainability of our seas.
