Marine environment and security in the european area - strand 1

Objective

In spite of the considerable advances in the integration of numerical models and observing systems, their provision of information products to support the assessment of the state of European marine environments and ecosystems is currently fragmented, regionally inconsistent and very often incomplete. Until this deficiency and its causes are properly documented, it will not be feasible to identify the important knowledge gaps that, in turn should be prioritised and filled via targeted research and monitoring as stated in the GMES call. In this context the MERSEA Strand-1 project will consequently analyse the strength and weaknesses with existing European operational oceanography and data assimilation systems, in particular regarding
a) modelling capabilities; and
b) data observations, integration and data flow.
