CO2 monitoring in the ocean: UN Ocean Decade supports project with IDOS participation

The C-SCOPE project is now officially a UN Ocean Decade project and aims to improve knowledge of the CO2 uptake capacity of the ocean. The UN Ocean Decade Project „C-SCOPE in Action“ includes the ongoing work of the BMBF-funded C-SCOPE project.

C-SCOPE is led by the Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel (GEOMAR). Project partners include the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS), the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH), Friedrich Schiller University Jena, the Leibniz Institute for Baltic Sea Research Warnemünde (IOW) and the Rio de Janeiro State University (UERJ).

„C-SCOPE in Action“ includes the ongoing work of the nationally funded C-SCOPE project, but goes beyond it in its timeframe and objectives. The results of C-SCOPE will be shared globally through the Global Network of the Ocean Acidification Observing Program (OARS) of the Ocean Decade. OARS is intended to perpetuate observing systems and ensure global sharing of results through integration in the Global Ocean Acidification Observing Network (GOA-ON). Ocean acidification is measured and monitored worldwide using coordinated indicators.

The United Nations Ocean Decade aims to implement transformative solutions across disciplines and countries for the protection and sustainable use of the ocean, for example, through the Decade’s support of projects such as C-SCOPE throughout its programs. This program ensures global networking with key experts to share and expand knowledge on the ocean.
