FerryBox Workshops

After completion of the EU-funded project ‘FerryBox’ in 2005 the FerryBox community wanted to improve the combined knowledge. Therefore the FerryBox workshops were originated in order to share experience and knowledge about the use of different underway systems.

Tallinn 2014, 6th FerryBox Workshop

FerryBox systems are constantly developed and more instruments are integrated to the flow-through system which are installed to more ships with new transects hence covering more sea-areas with more precise data. Integrating even more with remote sensing and modeling products, these in-situ measurements will be a substantial part of an operational oceanographic network. To discuss gathered experience (knowledge), new ideas and directions considering flow-through systems, 6th FerryBox Workshop was held on 8-9 September 2014, Tallinn, Estonia in the premises of Marine Systems Institute at TUT.

Themes


  • Regional systems – latest developments (new systems and lines, integration with other systems, development of indicators for WFD and MSFD).
  • New sensors and applications (algal productivity, carbonate system, detection of species/groups, micro plastics and harmful substances).
  • Operational oceanography applications (ground truth for remote sensing, assimilation into operational models).
  • Latest scientific findings and results (with contribution from FerryBox systems).
