COSYNA - Coastal Observing System for Northern and Arctic Seas

Coastal Observing System for Northern and Arctic Seas (COSYNA)

The COSYNA Mission is to develop an integrated observing and modelling system suitable for the operational and synoptic description of the environmental status of the North Sea and Arctic coastal waters. COSYNA aims to provide data and knowledge tools to help authorities, industry, and the public to plan and manage routine tasks, respond to emergency situations and to evaluate trends. Scientific products and infrastructure are developed to foster scientific knowledge of the “global coast” and its regional manifestations.

COSYNA is financed and coordinated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Centre for Materials and Coastal Research GmbH. The scientific work is carried out jointly with the following partners of the Helmholtz association, universities, and monitoring authorities.

The coastal platform of ACROSS will extend COSYNA to the land side (estuary) and to more offshore regions of the North Sea.


Underwater Node

The COSYNA under water node offers an infrastructure that enables scientists to operate sensors continuously under harsh environmental conditions. more information


Glider
Glider

COSYNA gliders are autonomous underwater vehicles that are equipped with a variety of sensors. They are deployed for multiple weeks and deliver a three-dimensional picture of the ocean. more information
