PAP-SO cooperates with many different sites and networks
PAP-SO is funded by the CLASS project and contributes to the delivery of knowledge and understanding of the Atlantic Ocean system that society needs to make evidence-based decisions regarding ocean management.
The Marine Automatic Weather Station (MAWS) network is a collaboration between the Met Office and the NOC started in 2010, resulting in a Met Office surface buoy with in situ meteorological measurements being deployed at the PAP-SO.
The Innovation in the Framework of the Atlantic Deep Ocean (iFADO) project aims to create marine services at regional and subregional scales using the EU Atlantic Waters as a case study.
The PAP-SO is a fixed ocean observatory within the Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS) that takes ocean, atmospheric and ecosystem greenhouse gas observations into the carbon portal.
The European Multidisciplinary Seafloor and water column Observatory (EMSO) aims to explore the oceans, to gain a better understanding of phenomena happening within and below them, and to explain the critical role that these phenomena play in the broader earth systems.
PAP is a key observatory in the OceanSITES International Deep Ocean reference stations network.
Climate Variability and predictability (CLIVAR) is a world research programme.
Continuous Plankton Recorder Survey formerly the Sir Alister Hardy Foundation for Ocean Science (SAHFOS)
Bermuda Atlantic Time-series (BATS) is a key OceanSITES observatory for comparison studies.
Hawaii Ocean Time Series (HOT) is a key OceanSITES observatory for comparison studies.
Station M is a key OceanSITES observatory for comparison studies.
Western Channel Observatory
The Western Channel Observatory deploys an array of buoys in the Western English Channel
Coastal Observatory – Irish Sea
The Coastal Observatory deployed an array of buoys in the eastern Irish Sea.
The SWIRE NOCS Ocean Monitoring System (SNOMS) is an innovative programme designed to quantify key ocean processes.
Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is funded by the US National Science Foundation (NSF).
Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) project
Controls Over Mesopelagic and Interior Carbon Storage (COMICS) investigates carbon dynamics in the ocean interior to improve predictions of future global climate change.
