Join this outreach event highlighting the advancements in Norwegian marine observational capabilities led by NorEMSO, the EMSO ERIC Nordic Seas Regional Facility. NorEMSO’s network in the Nordic Seas boasts three key components: moored observatories, underwater gliders, and an integrated seafloor and water column observatory.

The overarching objective is to enhance understanding of the drivers for the temporal and spatial changes of water mass transformations, ocean circulation, ocean acidification and thermo-chemical exchanges at the seafloor in the Nordic Seas. NorEMSO provides new knowledge about all these fields including a description of the hydrothermal outflow dynamics, their impact on the hydrothermal fauna and their effects on the surrounding ocean. Furthermore, NorEMSO benefits the Earth observation community in validation of satellite data and development of retrieval algorithms and satellite products.

NorEMSO serves as a crucial resource, providing data and platforms to a diverse range of users, from scientists and industries to institutions and policymakers.

In this context, we invite you to an introductory outreach session focusing on marine observational capability and forecasting in the European context. Join our event to learn about the NorEMSO capabilities and infrastructure and hear insights from the researchers involved.

Do not miss this opportunity to learn, network, and engage with NorEMSO, University of Bergen, University of Tromsø, Norwegian Polar Institute, NORCE, Norwegian Meteorological Institute and Institute of Marine Research.
