3rd AtlantOS Ocean Hour

3rd AtlantOS Ocean Hour

Event date: 13/04/2021

The 3rd AtlantOS Ocean Hour will be held on April 13, 2021 at 15:30 – 16:30 (UTC) and it will be followed by a 30min optional Networking (16:30 – 17:00 UTC).

 The Ocean Hour will provide an opportunity for community and stakeholder engagement in the development of the All-Atlantic Ocean Observing System. New deas, progress in specific topics, use cases, projects, programs, and issues in developing e.g. communities of practice will be discussed. 

This AtlantOS Ocean Hour will focus on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), in the North and South Atlantic, and more specifically on these two overarching questions:

(1) How do we use data collected through AMOC observational programs? 

(2) How can we increase the socio-economic impact of the AMOC programs?

The international basin-scale program AtlantOS supports cooperation, alignment of interests and the implementation of an integrated All-Atlantic Ocean Observing and information System, which connects a number of highly relevant existing and future ocean observing activities. AtlantOS brings together upper, deep and coastal observing partners, connects observing networks and supports the evolution and implementation of an All-Atlantic Ocean Observing system. AtlantOS contributes to the Global Ocean Observing System and the GEO Blue Planet initiative and benefits from support and cooperation with several other programs and initiatives (e.g. All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance).
