Abstract:
The European Multidisciplinary Seafloor and water column Observatory (EMSO) aims to explore the oceans and to explain the critical role they play in the broader Earth systems, focussing on climate change, risks of biodiversity loss, and natural hazards. EMSO's observatories are platforms equipped with multiple sensors to measure biogeochemical and physical parameters such as ocean temperature, dissolved oxygen concentration, and ocean current speed and direction.
EMSO consists in a system of regional facilities placed at key sites around Europe, from North East to the Atlantic, through the Mediterranean, to the Black Sea. Observatories are platforms equipped with multiple sensors, placed along the water column and on the seafloor. They constantly measure different biogeochemical and physical parameters, that address natural hazards, climate change and marine ecosystems.
EMSO is a consortium of partners sharing in a common strategic framework scientific facilities (data, instruments, computing and storage capacity). Formally it is a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC), legal framework created for pan-European large-scale research infrastructures.
