A framework for improving regional and global climate monitoring

The ocean has a great and fundamental impact on climate, in fact nations make use of ocean observing and finance it according to their interests, but always in compliance of European and international agreements and directives. ObsSea4Clim, through a(RRR) approach (Rolling Review of Requirements), wants to improve the multipurpose observations – vital to European and global climate requirements – by bringing together key European actors within ocean observing science, climate assessment,Earth System Modeling data sharing and standards with users of oceanographic products and services.

The result will be the delivering of an advanced framework based on Essential OceanVariables (EOV)/ Essential Climate Variables (ECV).In the context of data management, EOV and ECVs are terms often used in the field of Earth and environmental sciences. These terms are associated with efforts to standardize and prioritize the collection and management of data related to the Earth’s climate and oceans. The project is composed of 4 parts: the EOV/ECV concept, regional indicator concepts, the nation’s multipurpose ocean observing (climate, services, ocean health) and integration with European and global initiatives. In this way, there will be an improvement of regional and global climate assessments and projections and actionable indicators for sustainable development will be provided.

The use of six ocean climate application areas (sea-ice loss, ocean transports, ocean stratification, sea level, ocean warming and marine heat waves, ocean mesoscale) will transform the regional observing into an EOV/ECV framework suitable for regional and global climate products, ESM developments and indicators. Moreover, ObsSea4Clim will resort to AI methods which will provide data quality control and unlock EOV/ECV from existing data repositories and will promote the use of FAIR/CARE data, enabling and advocating their use for versatile applications and referenced to an EOV/ECV framework. The project will lead the dialogue with European and international initiatives in order to exchange and implement ObsSea4Clim results into the international system ensuring EU’s leadership in ocean- climate -biodiversity science nexus at a global level.
ETT deals with the retrieval, management and analysis of data obtained from observations through the development of a data management platform.
