atlantic obsertavory

The Atlantic Observatory will be organized as a Joint Research Unit, promoting the network of relevant marine authorities and research institutions, with strong involvement of the research communities from the mainland and the other two Portuguese Atlantic regions (Azores and Madeira). The ATLANTIC OBSERVATORY (AO) corresponds to an effort to defragment ongoing initiatives from the different research groups, mostly in cooperation with international consortia, strengthening the role of Portugal as an active player of the development of research, monitoring and governance of the Atlantic. The key idea of the ATLANTIC OBSERVATORY relies on the creation and operation of an integrated, efficient, low-cost and scalable marine observation system, focused on the Atlantic Basin, gaining from ongoing global or regional initiatives, promoting networking between stakeholders, and acting as a single access datapoint, information and services associated with the Atlantic. When operational, such observatory will be a keystone for the management of marine protected areas, the design of spatially explicit marine planning, assessing anthropogenic pressures and ultimately supporting the blue economy of the Atlantic.
