The UK Integrated Marine Observing Network
21 November 2012
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
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
Posters will be on display throughout the workshop. If you would
like to present a poster please send your title and abstract to
James Johnson, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Poster boards are limited to 28 and will be allocated on a first
come, first served basis.
