The Jerico OceanBoard will function as a web publishing platform to disseminate tailor-made products to specific levels of society, fulfilling the knowledge needs of more specific professionals like scientists and decision-makers, and supporting the outreach and uptake of important messages to the public. It will sieve out the essence of project deliverables and related thematics and applications to promote uptake of knowledge, practices and standards as well as supporting more widespread use of operational oceanography services and products.
