The second call for access to the JERICO Coastal Observatories and Calibration Facilities is open from 14 January 2013 to 18 March 2013 with activities scheduled to start in the early summer of 2013 subsequent to a formal screening and selection process.
The JERICO project is offering access to different ferrybox lines in the Baltic Sea, the Greater North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, various networks of fixed platforms and other single fixed point installations (buoys, towers, shore stations and underwater installations), and glider fleets based in the Greater North Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Calibration laboratories are also being put up for access.
This is a unique opportunity for scientists and engineers to avail of high-quality, interlinked instrumented infrastructures operating in coastal and shelf-sea areas for carrying out research and/or testing activities.
Interested users can request access to one or more facilities. JERICO will provide them with technical assistance, travel support and often many core measurements that may be necessary to their work. Visitors and projects will be selected on the basis of the quality and novelty of the proposed activities.
