- Integrate existing and future observational efforts in the Atlantic Ocean
SIH integrates current and future efforts for observing, understanding, predicting and managing Sargassum on an ocean basin-scale perspective
SIH will achieve societal impact by addressing challenges and enhancing opportunities in the spread of Sargassum across the Tropical Atlantic Ocean
The developers of the Sargassum Information Hub – GEO Blue Planet Initiative, in collaboration with IOCARIBE of IOC-UNESCO, AtlantOS, the Atlantic International Research Center – pledge to keep the platform constantly updated and open to all stakeholders, providing actionable information to address challenges and enhance opportunities in the spread of Sargassum across the Tropical Atlantic Ocean (https://sargassumhub.org/).
The main deliverable is the Sargassum Information Hub, which is a single-entry point to access information and tools for the monitoring and management of sargassum blooms for all stakeholders from scientists to local fishermen. The Hub provides information about on what sargassum is and why it is important. It also shares information related to monitoring and forecasting of sargassum in the Tropical Atlantic Ocean, management of sargassum, ongoing research, and news and events about sargassum
