Pillar 1: Innovation in Ocean Observing

Member Case studies published

Case studies conducted by POGO members in different parts of the world demonstrate real examples of various socio-economic benefits of ocean observing. In the first phase of the project (2021), five case studies focused on different approaches to Coastal Water Quality Monitoring in Malaysia, Nigeria, Portugal, China and Mexico.
