Fit for purpose in-situ Earth observations are essential for understanding environmental systems and assessing feedback loops/impacts in important interfaces, as is the land-sea interface at the coastal zones. Especially through the contribution of satellite data, there are still important gaps to be addressed to integrate in-situ Earth observations from the terrestrial and marine domains. There is a need for increased capacity to assess trans domain impacts, develop and validate detailed models and forecasting applications in the land-sea interface.

– Assessment of current in-situ observing capabilities and protocols of the terrestrial and marine domains, including hydrology, with emphasis on the coastal zones and focus on terrestrial/hydrological input to the sea
– Development of methods, tools, technologies and processes to fill the identified gaps

following the assessment and to increase integrated observing capacity in the coastal

zones and in the land-sea interface

– Development of interoperability standards between terrestrial and marine data and coordination of existing observation services and networks

– Advance forecasting and modelling capacity in the coastal zones
– Developing close coordination and collaboration across scientific communities

– Increased availability of integrated in-situ observations at the land-sea interface, with particular emphasis on river mouths, estuaries and deltas in Europe

– Appropriate/improved interoperability standards and new methods, protocols and technologies for integrated observation at the land-sea interfaces, standardised methods to efficiently combine Earth observation data from different sources

– Improved hydrological, biogeochemical, ecological and coastal modelling based on the integration and combination of these new sources of in-situ observations and their combination at the land-sea interface

– Enhanced networking between the relevant observation communities and training of the citizen science community
