Operational Observation

Through Operational Observation we seek to develop a cutting-edge, multiplatform, and multidisciplinary coastal observation network, consolidating a marine research infrastructure, which allows the generation of all necessary information pertinent to  the sustainable management of coastal areas, their resources, and human activities.

We are entering the United Nations Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development (2021-2030). The challenge is to jointly design and implement an oceanic observatory that provides data and information for an ambitious policy of transformation towards a blue economy and a sustainable future.

At AZTI, we are working on the development and implementation of innovative observation systems, with in situ, remote and autonomous solutions, expanding the multidisciplinary capacity of the observatory. Considered also are chemical parameters (temperature, salinity, currents, waves, etc.) as well as the physical or biological parameters (e.g. :pH, fluorometry, etc.).
