The synthesis will provide an assessment of the current state of the Atlantic Ocean ecosystem while focusing on the six main areas of study and combining the results of WPs 1 to 4. The data background will further be applied to evaluate to-date assessments of the North and South Atlantic. In terms of data provision, the synthesis will be focused on the requirements of model simulations and development (CTs 2&3) and socio-economic vulnerability assessments (CT4).
