EuroGOOS Annual Meeting, 20-22.May 2015, Brussels, Belgium
EGO: a glider community (sci & tech)
EU, USA, Canada, Australia, Mexico,
South Africa, Peru, Chile,…
(academics+manufacturers)
• EGO meetings and Glider Schools
• Showcase website
http://www.ego-network.org
(10,000 unique visitors and 100,000 pageviews per year)
• International fleet experiments
• OceanObs’09 White Paper (Testor and 44 co-authors, 2010). Gliders
 are perfectly suited for physical, biogeochemical and biological measurements
 can be used in combination with the other components of the GOOS
 can enhance the spatio-temporal sampling of the GOOS (in-situ) where
required
OceanObs’09  need for a glider component in the GOOS in line with the other
components, recommendations
EGO: international coordination
process studies
AND
long-term observations (repeat-sections in key areas)

Monitoring the glider network activity
is based on the operators good will.
Maybe ~500,000 profiles since 2005.
A lot of data sent to data centers
Sustained activity (USA, Australia, EU)
All glider deployments since 2005
(+ deployments in the
Artic/Antarctic, SE/SW Pacific,
Polynesia, Indian ocean,…)
USA
~ 12,000 km altitude

 > 10,000 profiles / year (physical/biogeochemical)
 20-30% of the global activity

Issues and challenges for gliders
“main” gliderports
Scientific, organizational, and technological issues
(new paradigm: bidirectional communications)
distributed all around the world
OceanObs’09 recommendations:
Best practice for gliders
 the formation of the global
glider system;
 the adoption of standards and
a “Argo” like data system for
gliders;
 the setup of a network of
shared resources and
expertise;
 to establish the adoption of a
common and accessible portal
for glider data.

The 5 aspects of a Gliderport
•System reviews
•Gap analysis
•Costs analysis
An example of
a fairly sophisticated
glider port.
Most important tasks
covered but at great
costs/efforts.
•Recommendations
•Standards
•Protocols
•Best practise
•Design
Networking towards a Glider EU Research Infrastructure
coordination, sharing, exchange,
standards
(GERI)
able to contribute to the GOOS
(robust and sustained)
engage new users (access), enable new applications
Different aspects to consider for networking/pooling
Need for a glider coordinator
(Black) proposed tasks for the GERI
(White) kept at the glider operator level
Level of integration of the GERI
agenda for the next years (2015-2017; 2017-2019; 2019+)
Gliders and EuroGOOS
• Systematic and long-term measurements, rapid interpretation and dissemination
• Development of Operational Oceanography (EU Seas + adjacent oceans)
• Foster European scale co-operation and integration on Operational Oceanography
The way forward – GERI (Glider European Research Infrastructure):
a distributed architecture in six EU ROOSes (+ global) for sustained glider
repeated sections (gaps: shelf-open sea continuum, physics/biogeochemistry)
Such a GERI is necessary for :
 coordination of the European
contribution to a sustained marine
observational system, towards a
European Ocean Observing System
(EOOS)
 working closely together with EU
Marine Research Infrastructures,
JPI Oceans, EMODnet, EU
Copernicus Marine Service, EEA,
ESA, EUMETSAT,… and
EuroGOOS national/institutional
members.
EuroGOOS and a glider TT
•
Endorsement, visibility and more
outreach/awareness for the gliders.
•
Networking with other obs. systems
•
Definition of a global glider program ;
consensus on main scientific objectives ;
links with the ROOSes and WGs/TTs
•
Help to set up a GERI (join the ESFRI
roadmap?)
– Better use of gliders (e.g. research,
operational oceanography, in-situ/satellite
comparisons, academic models, industry…)
– Better coordination with the other in-situ
and satellite components
(legal entity: excellent science, scale economies,
maritime law/traffic issues…)
•
Support for a glider coordinator and a glider
committee
Issues impact
Desired outcomes ?
 Expect a snowball effect for
(present and future) glider
operators. Sustainability, capacity
building and development.
Terms of Reference for a glider TT in EuroGOOS
1. Act on behalf of the European part of the global glider community (EGO).
Develop a glider component in the GOOS at the EU level together with
international partners (USA, Australia, South Africa, Mexico, Peru, Chile,...).
2. Develop the European glider network, coordinate and assist the
standardization of glider operations, data and applications. Ensure data
availability, via EMODnet and ROOS data portals in particular.
3. Set up a framework for users and operators:
1. promoting glider applications through liaison between providers and users,
advocacy, and provision of expert advice.
2. sharing success stories and difficulties
3. maintaining and sharing reference material on glider-related technologies
(sensors, their protocols, readiness levels and specifications, data management
standards, protocols)
4. providing and exchanging open source tools (piloting, maintenance, data QC and
analysis, applications…)
5. promoting scientific synergies with other observing systems for key questions;
filling gaps !
6. promoting joint proposals
4. Contribute to the development of the European Ocean Observing System
(EOOS), in the coastal area and in the open ocean. Establish a Glider
European Research Infrastructure (GERI) to better sustain this glider activity.
