New monitoring technologies are key components of ocean
observatories, also called marine research infrastructures being implemented
in the worlds oceans. As a result, new capabilities to characterise,
in quasi-real time, the ocean state and its variability at small scales exist today. The challenge is the integration of theses multiplatform observing
and forecasting systems to (a) monitor the variability at small scales
(e.g. mesoscale/weeks) in order to (b) resolve the sub-basin/seasonal and
inter-annual variability and by this (c) establish the decadal variability,
understand the associated biases and correct them. The challenge is also
to change focus and now monitor from small to large scales. SOCIB is
leading this new small to large-scale multi-platform approach in ocean
observation. Some examples are presented and discussed together with
initial ideas on the optimal design of an observational network in the
world oceans, responding to science priorities, technology development
and response to strategic society needs.
