The All-Atlantic Ocean Observing System Program


A comprehensive Atlantic Ocean Observing System that benefits all of us living, working and relying on the ocean

The AtlantOS High-level Strategy was published in Frontiers in Marine Science [deYoung, B., Visbeck, M., et al. (2019): An Integrated All-Atlantic Ocean Observing System in 2030] and can be downloaded soon.

AtlantOS supports the Atlantic basin scale implementation of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS) and contributes to the Group on Earth Observation (GEO) Blue Planet Initiative.

The establishment of the AtlantOS program benefited from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme project AtlantOS (grant agreement No. 633211). It’s coordination is collaboratively supported by the Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AORA), the All AtlaNtic Cooperation for Ocean Research and innovation (AANChOR) and other national initiative around the Atlantic basin.
