Final Report - MERSEA (Marine Environment and security for the European Area)

Project ID: 502885
Funded under: FP6-AEROSPACE


This is the final synthesis report of the Mersea project which aimed to develop ocean monitoring and forecasting systems for a broad range of research and development activities and ensure that they operate on firm scientific and technical grounds. The rationale behind the project was that a prerequisite for the development of ocean and marine applications is the provision of reliable, generic data and information products serving the needs of the final users.

The activities described in this document can be grouped in the several inter-related categories: those dealing with ocean data from earth observation satellites and in situ data (from buoys, ships and floats); system development, implementation and operation; final user products and applications. As the project was organised in 13 work packages, their executive summaries have been grouped at the beginning for easy reference.
