CoastObs aims to develop innovative EO-based products (monitoring of seagrass and macroalgae, phytoplankton size classes, primary production, and harmful algae) and higher-level products (indicators and integration with predictive models). 
CoastObs also aims to establish sustainable supply chains that can be directly integrated into the users’ systems. The CoastObs consortium aims to define user groups with common requirements, so tailored products can be developed at highly reduced costs per user. Setup of efficient data structures (array database) for smart (re)processing of data is part of this ambition.

Collaboration with Blue-Cloud

  • Connecting Data to key European Data Management service providers via Blue-Cloud: During specific technical meetings, CoastObs offered the willingness to test data linked to its main research (seagrass, macroalgae, phytoplankton, primary production, and harmful algae) in order to make it part of the Ble-Cloud DD&AS offer. In practice, this would have required CoastObs to populate their test data sets in the leading European marine data management infrastructures such as SeaDataNet, EurOBIS, and others.  However, due to lack of time and resources from CoastObs, this action could not be brought forward.
  • Joint dissemination/communication activities: CoastObs and Blue-Cloud have supported each other in promoting events organised by the respective teams to reach a wider community of experts.
