New EU Polarnet 2 Survey on Polar observing assets
World Ocean Council Invites Participation in Online Survey to Create an Overview of Existing Sources of Information on Polar Observing Facilities and Systems
22 July 2021
The World Ocean Council (WOC) encourages large participation in this online EU PolarNet 2 EU survey on polar observing assets.
The survey is open until August 1st 2021 and takes no more than 10 minutes to complete.
The diverse nature of observing systems in polar regions presents a fundamental challenge for assessment, planning, integration, and synthesis. In this respect, this survey aims to create an overview of existing sources of information on polar observing facilities, systems, and activities. This survey is an integral part of the EU-PolarNet 2 project and will allow more efficient use of facilities, as well as allowing for the discovery of gaps in observation capacities.
EU-PolarNet 2is a project (2020-24) funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 framework programme. Its goal is to establish a sustainable and inclusive platform to co-develop andadvance European Polar research actions and to give evidence-based advice to policymaking processes. Find out more about EU-PolarNet 2.
Participation in the survey is needed from representatives from institutions, countries, initiatives, and organisations that have an interest in polar observing.
