Our knowledge of the ocean is limited by our observational ability. To better understand and manage the oceans and the coastal systems, there is a clear need for environmental data of higher spatial and temporal resolution. Long-term operation of FerryBox systems has demonstrated the reliability and cost-effectiveness of such systems for observing the state of the ocean and seas over a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. There is great potential for data coverage using ferries and cargo ships of opportunity (SOOP) cruising on the same route on a regular basis, especially in coastal regions. It is fair to say that FerryBox systems have, reached reliability status. The installed systems can integrate data from water quality and meteorological sensors with GPS information into a data stream that is automatically transferred from ship to shore. Different applications reveal the usefulness of FerryBox measurements not only for monitoring purposes but for scientific question.....
