EMSO ERIC is glad to announce that its observatories’ team has recently grown! Three major infrastructures have joined the consortium to contribute with their scientific excellence in improving the understanding of the complex Mediterranean processes:

  • Western Mediterranean Sea managed by the National Research Council of Italy continuously acquires meteorological, physical, bio-geochemical, wave and underwater sound measurements for monitoring the region dominated by a quasi-permanent cyclone circulation Western Mediterranean Sea Profile
  • South Adriatic Sea run by the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics, is located in an area where deep convection processes take place, involving both the atmosphere and the ocean dynamics forming new dense and oxygenated waters South Adriatic Sea Profile
  • Cretan Sea managed by the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, is a reference point for monitoring open-ocean biogeochemical processes (including air-sea interactions) of the Eastern-Mediterranean Cretan Sea Profile
