After the MyOcean pilot scheme developped from April 2009 to April 2015, coordinated by Mercator Ocean, the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service is now open on an operational mode.
It yet serves close to 5000 registered users around the World.
Under the Delegation Agreement signed on November 11th, 2014, Mercator Ocean undertakes to successfully implement and develop the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS).
The CMEMS is a user-driven core service expected to contribute to European innovation and competitiveness. It helps build the Blue Economy, providing generic, reliable, timely and up-to-date information related to the Global Ocean and the European Seas that will be:
• open and freely available through a single access point (a web portal);
• a state-of-the-art and constantly evolving source of information, through a permanent dialogue with the scientific and technical community involved in operational oceanography;
• a European Service, with no overlap or duplications with the scope and responsibilities of the institutional marine services of Member States.
The Horizon2020 funded project “MyOcean follow-On let the floor to the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) without any service disruption.
