Moose Project > The implementation plan

The field strategy of the MOOSE Network  is  based on a multisite system of continental/shelf and deep-sea fixed stations as well as Lagrangian platform network to observe the spatio-temporal variability of processes interacting between the coastal-open ocean and the ocean-atmosphere components.

  • 2 rivers observatories
  • 3 observatories for atmospheric deposition:
  • 6 offshore moorings
  • 2 HF radars
  • Monthly and annual ship transects
  • Lagrangian and mobile platforms: 2 glider endurance lines and profiling floats

This is a very challenging goal, as in situ observing systems have different components complementing information on continental/atmosphere /sea interactions and on the whole water. The field strategy of the MOOSE Network  is  based on a multisite system of continental/shelf and deep-sea fixed stations as well as Lagrangian platform network to observe the spatio-temporal variability of processes interacting between the coastal-open ocean and the ocean-atmosphere components.

MOOSE has succesfully  coordinated and integrated observation initiatives into a network based on existing and new monitorings, taking into account the scientific specificity of each station.The implementation is now scientifically consistent through all MOOSE sites and well balanced across the laboratories and observatories.
