 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'MyOcean is THE PROJECT to set up infrastructures, services and resources to prepare the operational deployment of first Marine Core Services. My Ocean answers to the topic SPA.2007.1.1.01 - development of upgraded capabilities for existing GMES fast-track services and related (pre)operational services. MyOcean is proposed by a consortium of 67 partners spread in maritime countries: - federated around a core team of MCS operators - connected to Key R&D players with independent experts - rich of key intermediate users ready to commit to the service validation and promotion and play the role of beta-testers. My Ocean is not “the MCS” but shall provide the major building blocks and umbrella to allow the operational deployment of a full MCS in cooperation with external providers (National Met services, EMSA, …). MyOcean proposes to set an incremental logic and a governance to remain sustainable after the project and able to welcome new science and new services. The project includes the following tasks: - The definition of a first set of operational Marine Core Services, first package of an enlarged MCS portfolio - The operational development of European upgraded capacities acting as a common denominator for Member States, EU needs for reference marine information - The pre-operational validation of these MCS infrastructures and services and their formal commissioning - The marketing and promotion of Marine Core Services for use widening - The elaboration of a committed organisation to support at long term MCS operations, evolution and research. My Ocean inherits, benefits and pursues a European operational oceanography strategy started within EUROGOOS networks, and progressively implemented through subsequent projects: MERSEA Strand1, MERSEA, BOSS4. BOSS4 will provide a Version 0 of Marine Core Services fast tracks. MyOcean work plan shall cover the development, validation and pre-operations of the following versions of MCS V1 and V2.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

EU-funded researchers led by a team in France are working on providing a sustainable European service for ocean monitoring and forecasting.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

To date, EU Member States have developed their own capacities in operational oceanography, at global or regional scales. Scientists are now aiming to create a pan-European system that will include observations, analysis and forecasts describing the physical state of the ocean and its primary biogeochemical parameters.

According to the research team, the 'Development and pre-operational validation of upgraded GMES marine core services and capabilities' (Myocean) service will provide reference information on the ocean state, including temperature, salinity, currents, ice extent, sea level and primary ecosystems anywhere on the globe, anytime, and to anyone.

The service will be specifically aimed at bringing added value to European organisations in charge of ocean-related issues, and public and private organisations within the Member States. This includes meteorological agencies, ocean centres, environmental agencies, research centres, navies and coast guards, commercial service providers, and intergovernmental bodies in charge of ocean protection. But the service will be free and have open access.

Indeed, Myocean's objective is to foster the development of many ocean services for human or societal benefits in a wide variety of areas. Application of the services will be particularly useful in maritime security, oil spill prevention, marine resources management, climate change, seasonal forecasting, coastal activities and ecosystems, ice sheet surveys, water quality and pollution.
