It will be held in Brussels, 25-29 September 2017, the Copernicus Marine Week.
COPERNICUS is the European Earth Observation and Monitoring Programme. It aims to achieve an autonomous and operational Earth observation capacity (space and in-situ observation infrastructure) and to operate six different services: marine, atmosphere, land and climate change monitoring, together with support for emergency and security services.
Entrusted to Mercator Ocean, the EU Copernicus Marine Service (CMEMS) provides a full open and free access to regular and systematic reference information on the physical state and on marine ecosystems for the global ocean and the European regional seas (temperature, currents, salinity, sea surface height, sea ice, marine optics, nutrients, etc.).
Mercator Ocean has decided to carry out an open mid-term review during a dedicated event: The Copernicus Marine Week.
The Marine Week is an open forum meant for stakeholders, contributors and for beneficiaries of the EU Marine Service and beyond. It is therefore open to a large panel of institutions, agencies, regional stakeholders, entrepreneurs, service providers and scientists.
The purpose of the week is to present and openly release CMEMS major achievements as regards economy, societal challenges, science and EU leadership worldwide and is also meant to propose CMEMS future prospects to the benefits of Member States, Regions, and of the Society in general.
Planetek Italia joins the Marine Week with a presentation about its latest Earth Observation solutions for marine-coastal monitoring and focusing on Rheticus® Marine, its innovative, high-performing geoinformation service for monitoring coastal water quality. Rheticus® Marine is fuelled by streams of information from the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service, one of the six services of the European Union’s flagship Earth Observation programme, Copernicus.
