    Resum:

    The aim of this project is to develop a smart monitoring system that could prevent damages to the cable by early warning of potentially harmful activities. The system pursued in this proposal comprises two essential elements in order to achieve its goal: first, a Distributed Acoustic Sensor (DAS), i.e. a device that is capable of transforming a conventional single-mode optical fiber cable into an array of thousands of dynamic strainmeters, each one capable of recording tiny strain variations along a section of cable of a few meters; second, an artificial intelligence (AI) system capable of analyzing the data gathered by the DAS and transforming it into an intelligent interpretation of the potential threat to the cable in every possible situation. Such a system would be permanently scanning the natural and anthropogenic threats on the optical fiber infrastructure and would raise early warning alerts to trigger preventive actions. Moreover, the availability of continuous DAS measurements of strain distribution along the optical fiber cable could also allow the development of extensive fatigue analysis of the infrastructure, therefore allowing a continuous lifetime assessment of the cable and enabling predictive maintenance of the stressed sections. This maintenance scheme would be completely innovative in the field of submarine cables infrastructure.

    But the benefits of the project may expand beyond preventive maintenance. The work developed in this project is ground-breaking and could lead to a massive leap in the field of submarine Seismology. DAS technology can truly transform the way in which underwater seismic measurements are done nowadays. In submarine environments, the scarcity of instruments deployed so far offshore has led to biased and low-resolution measurements of the Earth tomography in these regions. Being capable of deploying large arrays of seismic sensors offshore at minimal cost (just connecting an interrogator device in one end of the cable) could enable new understanding of the Earth interior in these regions and new early warning systems for events as damaging as tsunamis. Beyond underwater Seismology, the contribution of this project could also transform the field of Oceanography, where it could provide a new tool to gain understanding on phenomena such as tides, infra-gravity waves, ocean currents or meteotsunamis.

    Resum:

    PLOME proposes a spatially adaptive modular platform of independent and wirelessly connected benthic stations and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) for monitoring and mapping marine ecosystems over long-lasting periods with near real-time supervision. PLOME project will provide an intelligent solution to the problem of spatio-temporal seafloor observations. The project will validate the different developments and the overall concept in three proof-of-concept consortium experiments: 1) in a coastal environment;  2) in a deep marine protected área as fishery-no take zone to restore the Nowray lobster stock (being co-managed with fisherman); and finally, 3) during one-week at the cabled observatory OBSEA as EMSO Test-Site (www.obsea.es).

    Specific objectives are:

    • O.1 To design a framework for deep-sea marine monitoring with a platform of fixed and mobile systems.
    • O.2 To develop technological capabilities to enable the prolonged deployment of AUVs at deep-sea for marine observation
    • O.3 To develop interconnected long-lasting stand-alone stations as a strategic multiparametric platform for continuous ecosystem monitoring.
    • O.4 To develop an effective communication strategy combining heterogeneous technologies for the operation of the different deployed systems.
    • O.5 To develop techniques for processing and analyzing different kinds of marine data gathered from mobile and fixed stations.
    • O.6 To conduct demonstrations of the overall PLOME concept and new developments in real operational scenarios.

    Resum:
    KEPLER is a multi-partner initiative, built around the operational European Ice Services and Copernicus information providers, to prepare a roadmap for Copernicus to deliver an improved European capacity for monitoring and forecasting the Polar Regions. Our motivation is to put the public and stakeholders at the centre of Copernicus. This follows the recommendations of the ‘Copernicus User Uptake’ review, and its 4 themes of:
    1. Raising awareness for the Copernicus programme,
    2. Informing and educating Copernicus users,
    3. Engaging Copernicus users in public and private sector, and
    4. Enabling access to Copernicus data and information.

    These well tailored themes form the core components of KEPLER. However, as the Polar Regions are changing, so too are the challenges and opportunities. Because of these shifts we have included two additional themes that encompass the evolving needs. These are needed to provide opportunities for better understanding the environment, research opportunities, establishing new industry sectors and startups, and importantly empowering citizens:

    1. Identification of research gaps regarding integration/assimilation, and
    2. Improved sea-ice mapping and forecasting.

    Through these 6 themes KEPLER aims to release the full potential of Polar Regions Earth Observation, including from ESA and EUMETSAT, by identifying and eliminating the barriers that impede the use of the tremendous resource that is Copernicus. This combines 2 key elements of the call: a) bringing together key European stakeholders and competent entities, and b) growing the Copernicus brand and user-base through providing enhanced scientific and technical support. Our objective with KEPLER is to provide a mechanism that enables the broad range of Polar Regions stakeholders to be equipped with the most accurate and relevant  environmental information so that they can seize the many benefits that Copernicus products generate for society and economy.

    Resum:

     

    The tropical Atlantic variability is thought to be controlled by two air-sea independent couple modes, denoted as Meridional (MM) and Equatorial Mode (EM). The MM and EM pattern peak in boreal spring and summer respectively, and exhibit pronounced environmental and socioeconomic impacts on the tropical countries. FESTIVAL MSCA-IF-H2020 project (grant agreement 797236) has investigated the connection between the traditional MM and EM, the air-sea mechanisms and oceanic wave activity involved and its multidecadal modulation. The main conclusions achieved during the development of FESTIVAL project are:

    1. Evolving modes, from winter to summer, emerge in the tropical Atlantic basin during the 20th century.

    2. These evolving patterns resemble different (same-phase and opposite-phase) connections between the traditional MM and EM.

    3. Evolving modes interact between each other at inter-decadal time scales along the historical record, associated with natural variability low-frequency variability patterns.

    4. The North Tropical Atlantic SSTs act as a precursor of equatorial Atlantic variability during the whole 20th century, providing significant predictive skill up to 6 months in advance.

    5. Oceanic Rossby waves, boundary-reflected into equatorial Kelvin waves, are the essential mechanism underlying the evolving modes and thus the MM-EM connection.

    6. The effectiveness of the oceanic waves in generating equatorial SST variability during summer months is modulated by the local wind forcing.

    7. The emergence of evolving modes causes a pronounced impact over the precipitation regime over Africa and South-America that substantially changes from winter to summer seasons.

    FESTIVAL results provide, for the first time, an integrated view of the boreal spring and summer interannual variability. The predictor role of North Tropical Atlantic SSTs to develop equatorial Atlantic variability is quite valuable to improve the current seasonal forecast systems. Furthermore, the seasonal varying rainfall patterns induced by the evolving modes over African and South-American countries significantly influence the agricultural practices, which allows the local governments and insurance companies to adapt specific strategies to guarantee a sustained development.
