Text Data Portals

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) consists of more than 100 organisations assembling marine data, products and metadata to make these fragmented resources more available to public and private users relying on quality-assured, standardised and harmonised marine data which are interoperable and free of restrictions on use. EMODnet is currently in its second development phase with the target to be fully deployed by 2020.

EMODnet Sea-Basin Checkpoint ‘Oil Leak Simulation’ challenge

News Flash: EMODnet Checkpoints face 6 oil leak challenges

In order to assess the potential of current marine data services to address commercial and policy ‘challenges’ relevant to the development of the Blue Economy, the six EMODnet Sea Basin Checkpoints were requested to assess the impact of simulated oil spills in their respective sea basins (the Arctic, Atlantic, Baltic, Black Sea, Mediterranean and North Sea).  The ‘Checkpoint Oil Leak Challenges’ were launched on 10/05/2016, with teams reporting after 24 and 72 hours on the fate and expected impact of the spills.  Further information and the detailed reports can be found on the maritime forum here.
