Research Directions:


EMBOS aims to establish a pan-European large scale network of marine observation stations, with an optimized and standardized methodology, to assess long-term changes in marine biodiversity and their possible causes taking into account natural and anthropogenic gradients. EMBOS will extend and optimize this observatory system, including novel interdisciplinary approaches for research. The cooperation will lead to a focused and cost effective long-term research agenda for EU marine observatories.
