Data Theme
Physical oceanography


This project catalyses co-operation through all Mediterranean countries to identify gaps in the present capability and enhance ability in observing, modelling and forecasting the ecosystem; raise awareness on the benefits of ocean forecasting; disseminate results and products; upgrade the infrastructure to underpin further research towards the design of a viable ocean nowcasting/forecasting of the state of the sea, according to end-user needs. The project will address the transnational pooling of scientific and technological resources through the sharing of experiences and the transfer of expertise, to bring capacities at comparable levels, and provide an integrated effort towards the planning and design of the initial ocean observing and forecasting system in the Mediterranean. The focus will be on the sustainable use of the coastal zone. MAMA will also interact with end-users and work in the whole basin to raise awareness on the benefits of ocean forecasting with dissemination of results and products. MAMA will put in place the institutional networking and establish the basic infrastructure for the future MedGOOS operational system. It will demonstrate the usefulness of ocean observations and forecasting, trigger local awareness and build the momentum towards long term commitments by governments.
