Sustained, Efficient Production of Required Information and Services within Europe is our only justification (SEPRISE)

Beşiktepe, Şükrü
The overall objective of the project is to discern and enable methods of increasing, improving and coordinating production of European scale Operational Ocean Forecasting Products and Services. This will be achieved by reviewing and then ensuring that, as far as possible, the findings and experience gained from the so-called Operational Forecasting Cluster of Projects funded under MAST III and FP-5, and other relevant sources, are pulled through into sustained, efficient operational oceanographic services. Recommendations for the future structure and functionalities of an integrated initial European coastal ocean observing and forecasting system will be made and a design plan to implement this will be prepared. Care will be taken to ensure that proposals are compatible with the wider implementation of GMES, in particular to ensure interoperability with similar initiatives outside the marine theme.


Operational Ecosystem: Ecosystem forecast products to enhace marine GMES applications (OPEC)
Salihoğlu, Barış(2014-12-31)
OPEC will undertake research and development to develop Operational Ecology to augment the capabilities of the GMES Marine Service. Using the Marine Service as a framework, OPEC will OPEC will contribute ‘to the establishment of innovative new GMES products or applications by’ establishing the infrastructure for the performance of ecology in the European Regional Seas by implementing a prototype regional ecological Marine Forecast System in 4 European Regions (NE Atlantic Baltic, Mediterranean and Black Sea...
Stable, Ductile and Strong Ultrafine HT-9 Steels via Large Strain Machining
El-Atwani, Osman; Kim, Hyosim; Gigax, Jonathan G.; Harvey, Cayla; Aytuna, Berk; Efe, Mert; Maloy, Stuart A. (2021-10-01)
Beyond the current commercial materials, refining the grain size is among the proposed strategies to manufacture resilient materials for industrial applications demanding high resistance to severe environments. Here, large strain machining (LSM) was used to manufacture nanostructured HT-9 steel with enhanced thermal stability, mechanical properties, and ductility. Nanocrystalline HT-9 steels with different aspect rations are achieved. In-situ transmission electron microscopy annealing experiments demonstrat...
Southern European Seas: Assessing and modelling ecosystem changes (SESAME)
Oğuz, Temel(2011-4-30)
The general scientific objectives of SESAME are to assess and predict changes in the Mediterranean and Black Sea ecosystems as well as changes in the ability of these ecosystems to provide goods and services. The Mediterranean and Black Sea will be approached as a coupled climatic/ecosystem entity, with links and feedbacks to the world ocean. The assessment of ecosystem changes will be based on the identification of the major regime shifts in ecosystems that occurred during the last 50 years. Mathematical m...
European Union Basin-scale Analysis, Synthesis and Integration (EURO-BASIN)
Salihoğlu, Barış(2014-12-30)
EURO-BASIN is designed to advance our understanding on the variability, potential impacts, and feedbacks of global change and anthropogenic forcing on the structure, function and dynamics of the North Atlantic and associated shelf sea ecosystems as well as the key species influencing carbon sequestering and ecosystem functioning. The ultimate goal of the program is to further our capacity to manage these systems in a sustainable manner following the ecosystem approach. Given the scope and the international ...
Marine Ecosystem Evolution in a Changing Environment (MEECE)
Salihoğlu, Barış(2013-2-28)
MEECE is a scientific research project which aims to use a combination of data synthesis, numerical simulation and targeted experimentation to further our knowledge of how marine ecosystems will respond to combinations of multiple climate change and anthropogenic drivers. With an emphasis on the European Marine Strategy (EMS), MEECE will improve the decision support tools to provide a structured link between management questions and the knowledge base that can help to address those questions. A strong knowl...
