The PML Quest and data buoy

The UK Integrated Marine Observing Network (UK-IMON) initiative

 

The UK Integrated Marine Observing Network initiative will ensure that a national marine observatory is in place to improve the evidence base for future assessments of environmental status, using the most cost-effective technologies available to the UK marine science community.

PML will be hosting a UK-IMON workshop to explore adding value to existing key monitoring sites. This will take place in the Lady Isobel Laing Marine Matters Centre at PML (27-28 November 2012). The workshop has been set up in order to identify the drivers/user-requirements for marine science (e.g. MSFD Monitoring) and ascertain how to improve the efficiency and quality of information from moorings throughout the UK. The workshop will focus on biological and biogeochemical measurements taking into consideration all measurements for the development of the network such as buoyancy gliders, wave glides and floats.

This event is funded by the Defra Strategic Evidence Partnership Fund (SEPF) and will focus on biological and biogeochemical measurements taking into consideration all measurements for the development of the network such as buoyancy gliders, wave glides and floats. The workshop will be beneficial for all marine scientists with any involvement in marine observing systems.

Posters will be on display throughout the workshop. Poster boards are limited to 28 and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
