Welcome to our visitors finding us at the 2024 European Ocean Days – Ocean Literacy in Action event in Brussels!

We appreciate you scanning our QR code and thank you for your interest in the ocean we all love and share.

To help you along your Ocean Literacy journey, to truly gain an understanding of the ocean's influence on you, and your influence on the ocean, we have prepared some special links to information and stories on the OceanICU website that may be of interest.

Check out our post webinar digital swag bags for information and links to informative presentations and discussion from experts from the OceanICU consortium. The masterclass-style presentations are available via pdf.

Hear our scientists discussing the current state of knowledge about the Biological Carbon Pump and how OceanICU is aiming to fill significant knowledge gaps.

Gain some insights into the research going on in the OceanICU project from our blogs.

Are you interested to know that a pod of minke whales off the coast of Svalbard, Norway excrete 600 tonnes of poo a day and how this is related to ocean carbon? Read Why whales are important in the Oceanic Carbon Cycle to learn about the research taking place as part of the OceanICU investigation by Carla Freitas and Morten Skogen.

Why is everybody talking about fish? Fiona Culhane and Paula Silva, Post-docs who recently joined the OceanICU project, take the time to explain the important role fish may or may not play on the ocean carbon process in a friendly blog. Talking Fish, Fisheries and the Carbon Cycle.

How will new knowledge from OceanICU contribute to Ocean Literacy? Nathalie Van Isacker explains how tools like the European Atlas of the Seas will be used to help educators and stakeholders wishing to visualise information about the ocean. Read her blog, featuring a good introduction to the European Atlas of the Seas: OceanICU and Wider Society.
