Location Met Office, Sandy Park, Exeter, UK, Exeter, United Kingdom
Short Title EuroGOOS 2008
Summary The EuroGOOS conference is a well established event taking place every three years, and this fifth conference follows in the footsteps of the earlier successful conferences held in The Hague (1996), Rome (1999), Athens (2002) and Brest (2005). 2008 promises to be an important year for operational oceanography, with the FP6 projects in their mid-term, the start of FP7 and actions to establish the GMES Marine Core Service. The community must respond to the need for environmental information to support the EU Maritime Policy and implementation of the Marine Strategy Directive. The EuroGOOS Conference will provide a timely opportunity to review progress, and to present and discuss plans for the future, covering all aspects of operational oceanography.
