Copernicus; dedicated to ocean observation and monitoring - Find out more

The Copernicus Marine Service (also referred to as CMEMS) is dedicated to ocean observation and monitoring.

Copernicus is funded by the European Commission (EC) and implemented by Mercator Ocean International, a centre for global ocean analysis and forecasting.

Copernicus Marine provides regular and systematic reference information on the state of the physical and bio-geochemical ocean at the global and European regional scale.

It provides key inputs that support major EU and international policies and initiatives and can contribute to: combating pollution, marine protection, maritime safety and routing, sustainable use of ocean resources, developing marine energy resources, blue growth, climate monitoring, weather forecasting, and more.

Copernicus also aims to increase awareness amongst the general public by providing European and global citizens with information about ocean-related issues.

Space2Waves project in cooperation with the Galatea project and NOVExport project organised a webinar with Mercator Ocean International which aimed to present the Copernicus Marine Service and highlight it with two use-cases.

Two SMEs involved in Space2Waves were invited to introduce the product they had developed by using Copernicus data.

* Augusto SEPP, from CMCC s.r.l presented the Multi-scale CMEMS ocean products: the path towards fit-for-purpose oil spill forecasting

* Muriel LUX, Oceanographer at NOVELTIS introduced the service they developed "Coastal service dedicated to fishing, aquaculture and maritime safety in the Arctic".

With more than 80 registrations and 60 attendees, mainly companies located in Europe, the webinar was a good success and is available to view at the following link:
