The vision of AtlantOS is to improve and innovate Atlantic observing by using the Framework of Ocean Observing to obtain an international, more sustainable, more efficient, more integrated, and fit-for-purpose system contributing to the Trans-Atlantic Research Alliance, the GEO (Group on Earth Observations) global initiative Blue Planet, and GOOS (Global Ocean Observing Systems). Hence, the AtlantOS initiative will have a long-lasting and sustainable contribution to the societal, economic and scientific benefit arising from this integrated approach. This will be achieved by improving the value for money, extent, completeness, quality and ease of access to Atlantic Ocean data required by industries, product supplying agencies, scientist and citizens.

Integration of ocean observing activities across all disciplines for the Atlantic

It is important to extend the scope of the existing ocean physics Atlantic observing networks to more fully include ocean biogeochemistry, biology, and to integrate efforts across these scientific disciplines.

International cooperation

All AtlantOS work packages will strengthen the trans-Atlantic collaboration, through close interaction with partner institutions from Canada, United States, and the South Atlantic region. – Further supporters and members are welcome

Engaging stakeholder around the Atlantic

AtlantOS will develop a results-oriented dialogue with key stakeholder communities to enable a meaningful exchange between the products and services that an Integrated Atlantic Ocean Observing System can deliver and the demands and needs of the stakeholder communities.

Competitiveness of industries, and SMEs of the marine sector

The developments envisaged in AtlantOS will provide improved sensors, data and modelling products and directly increase the competitiveness of industry and particularly SMEs within the marine industrial sector.

Fit-for-purpose Atlantic Ocean Observing System

AtlantOS will advance the network performance with respect to the quantity, quality and diversity of data that will be shared and delivered in a timely fashion to develop fitness for purpose.

Strengthening the contribution to the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS)

A major component of the Group on Earth Observations’ (GEO), its Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), and specifically on the emerging “Oceans and Society: Blue Planet” initiative
