EMSO ERIC, in cooperation with other relevant ERICs and Research Infrastructures (RIs), among which LifeWatch, Euro-Argo, EMBRC, DANUBIUS, and ICOS, have organized an open session on THE DEEP OCEAN OBSERVING SYSTEMS ENHANCING OUR GLOBAL CHANGES COMPREHENSION for the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting 2023, the most influential event in the world dedicated to the advancement of Earth and space sciences, which will take place in San Francisco, USA, from 11 to 15 December 2023.

The session, which will be held on December 13th, will be focused on the crucial role of the ocean in climate regulation with particular regard to two main topics:

– The slowing of global warming of the planet due to the relatively smooth cooling of the extra heat through the water column deep-sea;

– Absorbing of significant amounts of carbon allowed by the deep sea ecosystem.

Moreover, the session will represent a great occasion to showcase the Next Generation Multiplatform Ocean Observing Technologies for Research Infrastructures – GEORGE project, funded by the European Union aimed  to develop novel technologies to improve ocean observations and how it is invaluable the international cross-collaboration between the relevant ERICs and RIs to address environmental challenges that mainly affect the ocean by sharing and providing high-quality sustained services and data at the international and global scale, supporting a wide variety of stakeholders and policy-makers.
