  • MyOcean Project
Overview

MyOcean is the EU-funded project responsible for the development of the pre-operational GMES marine monitoring service.

Based on the combination of space and in situ observations and on data assimilation, MyOcean provides information on the ocean for the large scale (worldwide coverage) and regional scales (main European basins and seas): temperature, salinity, currents, ice extent, sea level, primary ecosystems, ...

Description

The targeted applications belong to four mains areas:

  • Marine safety (e.g. marine operations, oil spill combat, ship routing, search & rescue);
  • Marine resources management (e.g. fish stock management);
  • Climate and seasonal forecasting (e.g. climate change monitoring, ice seasonal forcasting);
  • Marine and coastal environment (e.g. ice sheet surveys, water quality, coastal activities).

MyOcean started on 1st January 2009 and will last for 39 months, with an estimated total cost of EUR 55 Millions. The project is partly funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme.

In cooperation notably with national meteorological services, the European Environment Agency and the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA), MyOcean undertakes the pre-operational validation of the GMES Marine Service.

The project also aims at proposing a governance structure for the GMES Marine Service.

MyOcean is undertaken by a consortium led by Mercator Ocean and composed of 60 partners from across Europe. The consortium is structured around a core team of marine service operators supported by key R&D players and experts.

Products

MyOcean develops upgraded European capabilities for reference marine information and provides a wide range of key ocean indicators such as:

  • Salinity (modelling and observation of salinity evolutions);
  • Sea ice thickness (e.g. observation and prediction of sea ice extent and movements, reactions to climate change);
  • Sea surface temperature;
  • Currents.
