Data about physics, biogeochemistry and paleoceanography of the eastern subtropical North Atlantic. more

CANIGO (Canary Islands Azores Gibraltar Observations) is the North East Atlantic MAST III regional sea project of the European Union (Contract MAS3-CT960060), for investigating and understanding the marine system in the Azores-Canary-Gibraltar region and its links with the Mediterranean Sea, through comprehensive interdiscplinary basin scale studies. Its general objective was to gain a better understanding of the physics, biogeochemistry and paleoceanography of the eastern subtropical North Atlantic. The study region of CANIGO encompassed the subtropical frontal system of the Azores, the Gibraltar exchange, the northern Canary Islands region and the transition zone of the NW African upwelling margin. CANIGO included scientists of 45 institutions from several European countries (Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom). The disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology and geology were included in a combined observational and modeling program. The CANIGO data are publicly available at the Irish Marine Data Center ( Only biological data are available through EurOBIS/EMODnet.
