Final Report - HALO (Harmonised Coordination of the Atmosphere, Land and Ocean Integrated Projects of the GMES Backbone)

Project ID: 502869
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE

Abstract

This is the final activity report of the EU-funded HALO which aimed to prepare the transition of Global monitoring for environment and security (GMES) projects from research to operational status. To optimise the interaction between the Atmosphere, Land and Ocean segments of the GMES backbone, recommendations were formulated in areas such as the acquisition, sharing and analysis of observational data.

These recommendations are summarised in this report, along with a number of scientific challenges of the research to operation transition. These include emerging needs for assimilation and modelling capabilities as well as the likely path of evolution for the interacting parts of individual projects. Lastly, the main outreach and communication activities of the HALO project are described.
