    Abstract

    The working groups and skills of the SOOS community can support the design and implementation of ecosystem monitoring systems for CCAMLR areas, existing and proposed Marine Protected Areas (MPA). SOOS has been recognised by the Scientific Committee as having an important role to play in CCAMLR ecosystem monitoring and observation; and spatial observations of impacts on ecosystems, climate change, and data delivery and management.

    This Background Paper provides an overview of SOOS’s regional working groups and observing system design capabilities; demonstrating how they can support the design and implementation of ecosystem and climate change monitoring, to complement CCAMLR and SCAR monitoring systems.
