This task will use outputs from the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) to develop a system for ship routing hazard mapping. Starting from knowledge of the environmental fields affecting vessel seakeeping, the system will estimate hazard and cost associated to known routes in the Atlantic Ocean. The system will employ model analysis or reanalysis of sea state (wave height, period, and direction), hydrodynamics (near surface ocean currents), and meteorological (wind) models. The system will...

Biodiversity changes and their functional consequences in the pelagic ecosystems of the central Baltic Sea Cruise No. AL521 April 16th - May 2nd 2019 Kiel (Germany) - Kiel (Germany) BALTIC APRILJan Dierking
This multidisciplinary cruise extended a long-term data series on ecosystem composition and functioning of the deeper basins of the Baltic Sea that has been collected in similar form since 1987. The key characteristic of the cruise was the integration of oceanographic and biological information to enhance understanding of environmental, plankton dynamics and fish population fluctuations, and ultimately, evolutionary processes in this system. The spatial focus lay on the Bornholm Basin as most important spawning area...
A report on sustainability issues and long-term implementation plan for IAOOS. National and European plans for long-term implementation (organization, funding, role of the different nations, EU, role and international partners) of the Atlantic observing system will be prepared.

Report summarizing the relevant best practices available in the GEOSS (AtlantOS) best practices registry
Assessment of the observing system fitness for purpose for the hazard mapping
A report providing an assessment of the adequacy of the cur-rent observing and information system (with results from five pilot countries) will be determined and properly documented. Key findings, experiences and recommendations will be for-mulated to evolve the Integrated Atlantic Ocean Observing System (AtlantOS).
Report on the progress made on the sustainability of the new Argo mission
Best practice document and review / inventory of current methods for sharing components of the Integrated Atlantic Ocean Observing System, such as ships, fixed and mobile observing systems, calibration facilities and support the use of the infrastructure for innovation testing, validation, or demonstration
Prior to the 4th annual AtlantOS meeting in month 48 a project progress report for the external project boards (EB and ISTAB) will be prepared to enable them to be as good as possible prepared for the meeting and to ensure consequently that AtlantOS receives as constructive as possible recommendations from the boards. This report, together with the two external summary board meeting reports, which will be requested from the EB and ISTAB, will represent...
A report on additional and add-on enhancements for the Continuous Plankton Recorder Survey programme including add-on variables and molecular analysis
Report on the current observing status in the North Atlantic subpolar gyre and the South Atlantic subtropical gyre, containing the results of the investigation on regional observing activities, systems, and connectivity in relation to climate and ecosystems
