The long term and wide spread presence of O&G infrastructure offers opportunities to make sustained observation over extended time periods and over broad spatial scales. Regular data collection using subsea technology can increase the network of deep monitoring of ocean variables and can be used to address climate, operational ocean services and ocean health. By using the blue industry is possible to collect biological and physical data and these measures can improve our scientific understanding of deep-sea environment. The blue economy includes a wide range of established commercial enterprise as O&G production, shipping and subsea technology. The high-resolution mapping and images of complex habitats can support a better understanding of the deep-sea by monitoring changes and predicting future impacts. Having accurate information available enables improvements in planning, management, environment assessment, monitoring, regulation of anthropogenic activities and conservation of deep-sea habitats.
Our multidisciplinary speakers are invited to share and discuss experiences to understand how we can help to improve the blue industry and deep-sea policy and practice in Norway and Brazil.
Present and discuss the Brazilian and Norwegian approach to the blue industry and their cooperation in a profitable and sustainable way.
How can we improve deep-sea environmental monitoring, policy and practice? Discussion on how the different stakeholders that use the deep-sea can contribute to a more sustainable operations in the deep-sea environment.
