  Name: European Station for Time-series in the Ocean, Canary islands
  Abbreviation: ESTOC
  Description: The European Station forTime-series in the Ocean, Canary Islands (ESTOC) is a sustained and multidisciplinary observatory located at the east central North Atlantic. The ESTOC goal is the creation of an Eulerian long time series on an inter- and multidisciplinary basis in order to monitor and help understand oceanic long-term variability in the North Atlantic subtropical gyre. ESTOC is providing hydrographic and biogeochemical time-series datasets from 1994. Activities include a ship-based observation program (observations of physical, chemical and biological parameters) and one moored structure with meteorological and oceanic surface observations, as well as in the water column.This observatory forms part of the FixO3, OceanSITES and EuroSITES networks of the deep ocean observatories.
