Exploitable results – Important expansion of biogeochemical monitoring in the Mediterranean and Black Seas
Result descriptionIncreased biogeochemical monitoring is an identified and pressing current need. Under PERSEUS new sensors were added to moorings and new bio-Argo floats as well as Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) monitoring initiated. This upgrade of the selected observatories in the SES is absolutely essential to improve the estimates of current ocean states and constrain model predictions, thus contributing to the proper implementation of GES as required by the MSFD.
