In the ocean chemical, physical and biological compartments interact in complex ways. However, the dynamics of its environments with an integrated view of all their components is largely unknown, mainly because biogeochemical and biological ocean monitoring is still underrepresented. Thus, there is a lack of long-term biological and biogeochemical data at large spatial scales synchronized in time and space together with chemical and physical data.
In MarinEye we applied an holistic approach by integrating distinct autonomous technology to observe the different compartments of the oceans at the same time scale.
MarinEye will give an extremely important contribution by complementing the already existent ocean observatories with novel integrative data not currently supplied.
