PEGASuS: Designing the observing system for the world’s ocean from microbes to whales

Principal Investigators:

Nicholas Bax, Daniel Dunn, and Patricia Miloslavich

A globally coordinated and sustained ocean observing system is urgently needed to systematically assess the status of the ocean's biodiversity and ecosystems and how these are responding to increasing resource use, including coastal development under the range of long-term climate change scenarios. A set of measurable biological characteristics or “biological essential ocean variables" have been identified by experts to aid global understanding of these responses and how they may provide the data that addresses policy seeking to manage or mitigate... more
