Leading Open Access publisher, Frontiers invites you to submit publications related to the topic Marine Observations and Society: Pathways to Improve Public Engagement and the Science-Policy Nexus
Improved societal understanding of the services provided by the ocean and better use of the data collected from the ocean underpin the development and implementation of sustainable decision making. This is also key for achieving the globally agreed sustainability goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030.
The challenge for research communities, and for other sectors of society, including business, industry, regulators and managers is to develop means to improve and increase the use of information derived from ocean observations as well as raising global ocean literacy and societal connections to the ocean.
This Research Topic brings together current interdisciplinary thinking around the pathways needed for taking ocean observations and transforming them into useful information for stakeholders and decision makers. It also discusses approaches and tools for improving societal ocean literacy, aiming for overall improved global value of the ocean and what it provides to society.
