Welcome to the Website of the European Ferrybox Community

6th FerryBox Workshop

8-9 September 2014, Tallinn, Estonia

FerryBox systems are constantly developed and more instruments are integrated to the flow-through system which are installed to more ships with new transects hence covering more sea-areas with more precise data. Integrating even more with remote sensing and modeling products, these in-situ measurements will be a substantial part of an operational oceanographic network. To discuss gathered experience (knowledge), new ideas and directions considering flow-through systems, 6th FerryBox Workshop is held on 8-9 September 2014, Tallinn, Estonia in the premises of Marine Systems Institute at TUT.



·        Regional systems – latest developments (new systems and lines, integration with other systems, development of indicators for WFD and MSFD).

·        New sensors and applications (algal productivity, carbonate system, detection of species/groups, micro plastics and harmful substances).

·        Operational oceanography applications (ground truth for remote sensing, assimilation into operational models).

·        Latest scientific findings and results (with contribution from FerryBox systems).
