 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Underwater gliders are intelligent and affordable platforms, useful for long-term, multi parameter marine observations. Because of their remotely controlled navigational capabilities and the high spatial and temporal resolution of their measurements in real-time, gliders have been identified to fill gaps existing in the existing ocean observing systems. Along with there rapidly growing importance in purely science driven applications, the implementation of gliders into the Global Ocean Observing System has been recognized as a key point to improve the observational capabilities of the observing systems.

The objective of the GROOM proposal is the design of a new European research infrastructure to use underwater gliders for the benefit of European citizens, researcher, and industry. GROOM will define the scientific, technological and organizational/legal levels, of a European glider capacity for research and sustained observations of the oceans, in line with the other European and international initiatives for marine in-situ observations. The proposal for this new infrastructure strongly relies on EuroARGO and JERICO infrastructures which are emerging and also considers the relevant international coordinating bodies such as GOOS. The proposed technological infrastructures will be based on several dedicated 'gliderports' to maintain and operate a European fleet of gliders in coordination with US, Canadian, Australian and other similar infrastructures. This new infrastructure would be beneficial for both academic oceanographic research and operational oceanography systems on which a large number of marine activities and societal applications now rely.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Underwater gliders are remotely controlled, affordable vehicles that can be used for long-term, real-time, multi-parameter marine observations. An EU-funded initiative is looking at incorporating gliders into existing ocean observing systems (OOSs).

Descrizione progetto (Article)

The project 'Gliders for research, ocean observation and management' (http://www.groom-fp7.eu (GROOM)) aims to fill gaps in current marine research infrastructures (RIs) for the benefit of science, industry and society. The new European infrastructure that GROOM is designing and beginning to implement, is based on several dedicated gliderports for the maintenance and operation of European gliders.

Project efforts are being coordinated with other relevant European Commission-supported projects, as well as American and Australian Ocean Observing Systems (OOSs). GROOM has already investigated and documented the advantages of using gliders for ocean prediction, optimal sampling in the OOSs as well as the policy and management of data collected by gliders.

Authorities have been approached regarding safety and legal aspects of glider operations and possible financial models have been reviewed. In addition, studies into performing synergistic experiments with other platforms and the testing of new sensors have begun.

Another area of work focuses on the research that can be done using gliders, such as the in-depth studies of certain biogeochemical processes. The expected outcomes are a globally accepted standard for glider data and a data flow scheme to be implemented by existing marine data organisations.

Broader outcomes include the design of a European RI that uses gliders in conjunction with other marine platforms for research, observations and environmental management. It will be most useful for academic oceanographic research and operational oceanography systems, which provide crucial information on marine activities to the commercial sector, governmental organisations and recreational users.
