OPEN ACCESS TO MARINE OBSERVATION DATA: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES

Wednesday 14th October - 13:30-15:30

Addressing global-scale challenges involving the marine environment relies on acquiring a comprehensive understanding of all of its compartments (from the sea floor to the atmosphere). Building integrated multi-scale products and models presupposes that the data collected through the observation of these compartments is available and interoperable. A wide variety of fields -physics, chemistry, geology, biology and many others- are involved in marine observation. Each of them has its own best practices regarding data description, archiving, quality control and publishing. This calls for interdisciplinary initiatives to reach a sufficient level of interoperability and thus leverage the potential of cross-discipline data products that will be made available to the scientific community.

GENOMIC OBSERVATORY: A NEW TOOL TO OBSERVE MARINE BIODIVERSITY AND ECOSYSTEMS

Wednesday 14th October - 16:00-18:00

Long-term observation of the marine environment is absolutely essential to understand the functioning of ecosystems and assess their health. In recent years, the development of genomic tools has profoundly changed the way we monitor biodiversity by promoting a holistic view of ecosystems. Yet, many methodological and conceptual challenges remain (automated sample acquisition, data processing and use in environmental monitoring by national agencies). In this session we aim at gathering various actors (academic, environmental managers, private companies) to exchange on challenges and opportunities associated with the development of concerted marine genomic observatories. It will be organized around a few introductive talks and a round table discussion.

ECOACOUSTICS, UNDERWATER SOUNDS OF BENTHIC INVERTABRATES

Monday 12th October - 16:00-18:00

In this “Ecoustics” session, the underwater acoustic landscapes will be considered as a proxy for the structure, functioning and dynamics of marine ecosystems. If events of ecological interest are noisy and/or drive the emission of a sound source, the measurement and analysis of acoustic landscapes makes it possible to obtain a set of valuable environmental knowledge. "Ecoustics" will show that passive acoustics allows to describe the activity rhythms of benthic soniferous invertebrates (like marine mammals) at either individual, population and assemblages levels and to deduce the ecological properties of the objects heard. In addition,“Ecoustics” will be of interest in measuring in the laboratory and in situ the impact of anthropogenic noise on behavior or on the lifecycle of invertebrates.

CONTRIBUTION OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO MARITIME AND COASTAL ACTIVITIES

Tuesday 13th October - 09:00-11:00

The use of current technologies and the observations they produce are important for maritime and littoral issues. The definition, application, and management of maritime and littoral public policies depends on the acquisition and diffusion of a variety of data: DCSMM, DCSPEM, SNML, SNGITC, Littoral law… Observations by satellites and drones, and maritime traffic analyses are essential both for local authorities, as much for security and as for detecting illegal activities, to insure the protection of the environment and the preservation of natural resources. The traffic analyses also allow the identification of areas at risk to help authorities take preventive measures such as the establishment of specific maritime routes or planning maritime area activities.

COOPERATION MODELS FOR OCEAN KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION

Monday 12th October - 09:00-11:00

Observation of ocean and marine systems is a key issue for better knowledge, ecosystems preservation and long-term development of sea-based human activities. In order to create synergies and foster innovation, many collaboration patterns between research organisations and private-sector stakeholders have emerged. This session investigates different ways of collaboration in France and in Europe, by relying on the following networks: EurOcean, Pôle Mer Bretagne Atlantique and Campus mondial de la mer. A round-table will address the key challenges for innovation networks: How do these partnerships contribute to observation? How to increase their contribution to the blue economy by developing new products and services based on observation data and knowledge diffusion?

MARINE SCIENCES, INDUSTRY AND TERRITORIES: OBSERVING PATHWAYS AND LOCAL STRATEGIES TO DEVELOP BLUE ECONOMY

Thursday 15th October - 09:00-11:00

Worldwide, part of the economic activity of coastal areas is linked to the presence of higher education and / or research organizations through, among other things, applied research, transfer, innovation or business creation. Scientific research, without being one of the major determinants of growth and employment in sparsely populated areas, is likely to encourage them. This session aims to explore science-industry-society relations in the territories, in the light of understanding keys proposed by social sciences. What do science and the development of technologies linked to marine resources “do” to the non-exclusively urban areas? How do the latter, in turn, build their economic development strategies by integrating these specificities? In what ways can these dynamics be supported? What are the success factors? This session will be dedicated to scientific communications and discussions bringing together speakers from various backgrounds.

INTERREG TIGER - GROWING THE SUPPLY CHAIN FOR COST EFFECTIVE RELIABLE COMPOSITE BLADES AND CENSOR DESIGN FOR TIDAL TURBINES

Tuesday 13th October - 10:00-12:00

Growing the supply chain for composite tidal turbine blades and sensors to improve cost reductions is a priority for the INTERREG TIGER project (2019-2023). The project seeks to bring turbine developers and supply chain companies together in the Channel region through this unique collaboration project. Presently, the use of carbon is becoming more important in tidal turbine blade design, but turbine developers continue to be confronted by limitations imposed by harsh ocean marine environments. The purpose of this supply chain event, being held in conjunction with Sea Tech Week 2020 in Brest is to cluster potential supply chain companies with expertise in the tidal energy sector and other marine and high performance environments to share experience and explore new solutions to similar design and production challenges. Key issues include weight reduction, mould reuse and increasing durability of materials in harsh saltwater environments.
Design and production companies are invited who have:

  • Experience of monitoring impact of turbulences on composite fatigue
  • Use of new composite materials including eco-friendly materials (i.e. recyclable/bio-sourced materials)
  • Reduced costs moulding and industrial processes for manufacture of composite blades
  • Integration of dynamic monitoring and sensor systems in composite materials
  • Performance coatings and antifouling (especially wrapping techniques as opposed to painting

WAVE AND WIND OBSERVATIONS APPLIED TO OFFSHORE RENEWABLE ENERGIES

Tuesday 13th October - 16:00-18:00

Improving knowledge of metocean conditions is crucial to optimise the design of renewable energy recovery systems such as floating wind turbines. Indeed, such machines can be exposed to extreme winds and waves in storms, which can jeopardize their mechanical structure. A detailed knowledge of meteoro-oceanic conditions is also necessary for fatigue calculations and the planning of marine operations. It is therefore essential to better understand and characterise these phenomena, which are very difficult to observe with in-situ instruments. To overcome this, remote sensing means deployed from terrestrial or satellite supports are promising alternatives.

THE EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY'S BLUE WORLDS INITIATIVE

Thursday 15th October - 16:0-18:00

For 50 years, by pooling the resources and brains of its Member States, ESA has been leveraging technologies and knowledge to enhance the growth and sustainability of the European society and the well-being and security of its citizens. The importance of the blue economy is steadily growing and the security and environmental dimension of maritime area is more and more vital to Europe and its future. ESA has therefore decided to address the nexus between space technologies and space-based systems and data, on one side, and the specific needs and requirements of the maritime sector on the other side. Whether for autonomous shipping, for marine litter or enhancing safety and security of maritime suers a more extensive and focused deployment of space based systems can be very beneficial and contribute to tackle key issues. The session will address the objectives, status and outlook of ESA’s Blue Worlds initiative and aim at engaging professionals from the maritime sector into a mutually beneficial dialogue.

AIS - TECHNOLOGY, DATA AND BEYOND

Friday 16th October - 09:00-11:00

Created in the 90’s, the Automatic Identification System (AIS) has continued to develop to address a wide range of user requirements. Originally designed to enable ship to ship and ship to shore vessel identification and tracking, it is now an essential pillar of e-Navigation. New AIS data collection systems, such as Satellite-AIS (S-AIS) or Mobil-AIS (M-AIS) allow ever more maritime traffic data to be used to provide innovative services to the marine community. Future systems such as VHF Data Exchange System (VDES) will also enable to extend the diffusion of AIS based services to mariners.

The session will present an overview of recent developments related to AIS technology  and how it is being used from the perspectives of data scientists and end-users.

PAPERS SESSION MOQESM - ROBOTICS FOR MARINE OBSERVATION

Session 1 (Tuesday 13th October - 13:30-18:00) and Session 2 (Thursday 15th October - 13:30-17:30)

Mobile robotics has developed in structured and already mapped environments. In unknown and unstructured environments, deep caves, seabed, robotics ... it becomes essential where humans can hardly intervene in safely, where the operator can't help robots by tele-operation. Autonomous and intelligent, the robot must explore and mapping its environment, take decisions, locate itself and be able to come back. Technological progress allows the development of innovative approaches to solve essential problems of perception of the environment and safe navigation while ensuring compliance with certain constraints (complete coverage of an area, avoidance of obstacles...).
