Why is ocean observing important? What can it tell us? And how can we use what we learn to address issues such as climate change, human health and food security?
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.
In 2022, we will continue to develop and share other examples of Ocean Observing in Action. The next main themes will be Climate-critical observing; Fisheries/food security and Geohazards.
