Ocean Flagship: Ocean Flagship

The Ocean Flagship is established bringing together main partners involved in the long-term ocean observations around Svalbard. The project will initiate a new Svalbard Science Forum (SSF) flagship program.

The main goal of the proposed SSF Ocean Flagship is to increase scientific cooperation between all countries and institutions actively involved in the marine research in the Svalbard area. At present the individual elements of the ocean observing system in Fram Strait and the European Arctic are mostly project-related and therefore relatively dispersed and independent. Moreover, the information flow between different players in ocean observations is rather limited.
