Impact

International impact

EuroSITES forms the European component of the OceanSITES network of deep ocean observatories: www.oceansites.org. OceanSITES which monitors key regions of the global Ocean from the air-sea interface to the sea floor.

EuroSITES and OceanSITES will form an essential component of European and International Ocean Observation programmes including GOOS (Global Ocean Observing System) and GEOSS (Global Earth Observation System of Systems).

European Impact

EuroSITES will work with other relevant European projects including MERSEA, ESONET, EMSO PP, HERMES, HERMIONE and EuroGOOS to contribute to the sub-sea component of GMES (Marine Core Services).
