AANChOR

All AtlaNtic Cooperation for Ocean Research and innovation

Mission: To help building an alliance of marine science institutions across the Atlantic, North and South, and to invite scientists from around the world to come together and support this great transatlantic cooperation initiative. The main ambition of AANChOR is to promote the implementation of the South Atlantic Research and Innovation Flagship initiative and the Belém Statement (BS), signed by the EU, Brazil and South Africa in 2017, to upscale research and innovation cooperation within the Atlantic basin, from Antarctica to the Arctic.

Approach: Motion collage to integrate material in different formats: video footage with sound bites from main project co-chairs, kinetic typography with key messages, stock and provided photos and existing iconographic material and logos.

SEAWATCHERS

Seawatchers / Observadores del Mar

Mission: To promote the new redisigned Seawatchers (Observadores del Mar) website for marine research. Through this web platform, people in contact with the sea can share their observations and experience regarding changing phenomena in this environment, which is useful for various marine research projects. One of the main aims of this project is to encourage citizens to participate in scientific projects that promote the conservation and knowledge of the marine environment. Moreover it is a very large project, with many different themes and activities ranging from lectures, school projects or networking sentinel observatories and encouraging citizens to be interested in marine sciences.

Approach: Video testimonials of various researchers, funders and contributors of the platform.

PETITS OCEANOGRAFS

Petits Oceanografs

Mission: To show the different activities of the project and to live stream the associated congress. The main aim of the Petits Oceanografs project is to promote the study of the oceans between Primary students (10-12 years old) through hands on workshops and a scientific congress. The project is funded by Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología (FECYT).

Approach: Video coverage of the different workshops and congress and also live streaming of the poster session.

EUROFLEETS2 ISLAND CRUISE

ISLAND Cruise

Mission: To show the main objectives and first results of the ISLAND cruise. The Eurofleets2 ISLAND project aims to produce an integrated approach in the study of the submarine canyons of NW Sicily.

Approach: Documentary filmed on board R/V Angeles Alvariño during the Eurofleets2 ISLAND Cruise.

PHYTOSCOPE

Phytoplankton biodiversity multiscale characterization using advanced optical technologies

Mission: To present PHYTOSCOPE project. The aim of this project, funded by the Total Foundation, is to demonstrate the feasibility of high-resolved oceanographic optical data for better understanding of phytoplankton biodiversity and dynamics. The overall objective of PHYTOSCOPE is to demonstrate the usefulness of high-resolved oceanographic data (in the three domains: spatial, temporal and taxonomical) for better discrimination of phytoplankton composition and dynamics, related to small and large scale processes.

Approach: Documentary. Filmed during one of the field trips to the project’s study area, the Alfacs Bay, a Southern coastal embayment of the Ebro Delta in the NW Mediterranean Sea. Motion graphics used to explain some of the concepts.

MELCOR CRUISE

Geo-acoustic mapping of benthic habitat distribution

Mission: To present MELCOR cruise, dedicated to acquire a high resolution geophysical dataset over the newly discovered Cold-Water Coral (CWC) mound fields of the Alboran Sea. This cruise is part of the EU FP7 Marie Curie Project GEO-HABIT, specifically fitted to study CWC communities, considered biodiversity hotspots in the deep sea.

Approach: Documentary filmed on board R/V Garcia del Cid during the MELCOR Cruise.
