Reducing observation gaps in the land-sea interface area

< Back

Open Call Reference: HORIZON-CL6-2023-GOVERNANCE

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.

– Assessment of current in-situ observing capabilities and protocols of the terrestrial and marine domains
– Development of methods, tools, technologies and processes to fill the identified gaps
– 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
– Appropriate/improved interoperability standards and new methods, protocols and technologies for integrated observation at the land-sea interfaces
– 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
– Strengthened coordination between Earth observation communities in the land and marine domains
