Bathymetric data for the whole of Europe, including the Arctic, are accessible for download through the EMODnet Bathymetry CDI Discovery and Access Service.
The production of the EMODnet Bathymetry Digital Terrain Model (DTM) data product was based on these datasets, and is accessible for download per tile through the EMODnet Bathymetry Viewing and Download Service (i.e. map viewer).
EMODnet Physics provides access to physical data from a global set of platforms in near-real time, for the past 60 days as well as archived data.
It also provides a number of data products building on data from these platforms. Users can access all available data from platforms in the Arctic using the map viewer and selecting the Arctic sea-basin subset.
Datasets on contamination, eutrophication and marine litter are offered through EMODnet Chemistry. Two search engines (CDI Data Discovery and Access Service – an extended and quick one) guide you through your search, and allow you filtering thousands of datasets until you find the one you need.
In addition, EMODnet Chemistry’s OceanBrowser map viewer presents unique data products based on the data, categorised per sea-basin and available for download.
EMODnet Biology offers the Data Download Toolbox, allowing users to filter the database according to their needs. One option is to filter the datasets based on geographical area.
Besides offering a single gateway to all thematic Data Portals, the Central Portal contains a data and data product Catalogue providing an overview of the majority of the data and data products (and associated metadata) available across all Data Portals. By making use of the search bar, the user can find back a list of datasets and data products with relevance to the Arctic sea-basin.
The objective of the Arctic Checkpoint is to examine the current data collection, observation, surveying, sampling and data assembly programmes in the Artic sea-basin, analyse how they can be optimised and deliver the findings through the dedicated web portal. This is realised by running data stress tests, within which the adequacy of the data is assessed for a number of pre-defined societal challenges (ten in case of the Arctic Sea-basin).
The Arctic Ocean includes the following water bodies: Baffin Bay, Barents Sea, Beaufort Sea, Chukchi Sea, East Siberian Sea, Greenland Sea, Hudson Bay, Hudson Strait, Kara Sea, Laptev Sea, Northwest Passage, and other tributary water bodies.
An interactive dashboard provides more insights in the results of the project in a graphical way: the user finds an archive of assessment reports, reports on dataset adequacy and information on the datasets explored by the Checkpoint.
