Objectives

The main objective:

An ocean observation system for the Nordic Seas, with autonomous profiling floats, that delivers high-quality in-situ data, in near-real time, and at any time, as a part of a worldwide monitoring program.

Long-term goals:

  • A sustained ocean observing system for the Nordic Seas for climate research and monitoring
  • Complement measurements in areas with less or no observations from other observations platforms
  • Improve the national data service of ocean observations
  • Develop Argo floats as platforms for additional and future (e.g. biological and chemical) sensors
  • Increased national and international collaboration, also within different disciplines
  • Contribute to an improved climatology of the Nordic Seas
  • Participation in the European Argo User Group
