Quantification of fluxes across the ocean margins is a fundamental requirement for the evaluation of the carbon budget and exchange of nutrients and associated trace elements between the continents, the coastal zone, and the open ocean.
Ocean Margin Exchange (OMEX) is designed to study the exchanges and processes occurring at the European continent/ocean margins in the North Atlantic. OMEX is a process-oriented project composed of five subprojects: Physics, Biological Processes, Biogeochemical Cycles, Benthic Processes - including Geology, Geochemistry and Biology-, and finally Carbon Cycling & Biogases.
