Monaco Arctic Carbon Observatory

Monaco's carbon observatory in the Arctic analyses the hydrography, carbon absorption and acidification of the shelf seas in the eastern Arctic. It also provides data and assessments for the stakeholders involved and the global scientific community.

These observations are made possible thanks to the installation of state-of-the-art, stand-alone instruments aboard an observation vessel. Such data will enable us to identify critical tipping points of the Arctic climate and ecosystems which could have extremely serious socio-economic implications.
