EMODnet is part of the agenda of the North Sea Countries energy cooperation plan

Last June, North Sea countries agreed to further strengthen their energy cooperation by signing a joint political declaration and action plan. EMODnet will play a key role in this process. The scope of the plan is the eventual development of offshore wind energy which will ensure a sustainable, secure and affordable energy supply to the region.

How can we improve the re-use and sharing of marine data by businesses?

For some time, the private sector has been name checked by marine observatories and public data-sharing initiatives as a target-user of their resources and/or as a potential source of data, with little concomitant targeted development by these initiatives to facilitate this.

As EMODnet moves into Phase III of its development and focuses more on user uptake to achieve the objectives of the Marine Knowledge 2020 Strategy, a more pro-active approach is required to effectively engage industry, both as users and providers of data.

New-look EMODnet Bathymetry Portal

EMODnet Bathymetry kicks-off Phase III with a new look, user-friendly portal providing access to its harmonised Digital Terrain Model (DTM) for the European sea regions. This DTM is generated by the EMODnet Bathymetry partnership on the basis of an increasing number of bathymetric data sets. These are managed as survey data sets and composite DTMs by data providers from government and research.

PLOCAN Seasonal Glider Mission

Find out how PLOCAN are contributing to the European glider framework and to EMODnet Physics

EMODnet Associated Partner, PLOCAN, are currently running a new seasonal glider mission (ESTOC2017_1) off the north-east coast of Gran Canaria. This contributes to the permanent operating and monitoring strategy of the PLOCAN integrated observatory, and to the European AtlantOS project. Standardised, quality controlled data, compiled by the glider in each dive will be made available, in real time, via EMODnet Physics. Further information can be found at the following link http://www.plocan.eu/index.php/en/newsplocan/2017/march/1673-europe-glider-en. and at EMODnet Physics.

A spotlight on the EMODnet bathymetry portal: innovations and results

Bathymetric data, in essence information about the water depth and underwater topography of oceans and seas, is important in many aspects of marine research, administration and spatial planning as well as for management of marine and coastal environments and their resources. In coastal areas societal needs are at the forefront: safety of vessel navigation is the most prioritized rationale for bathymetric mapping close to the coast, around shoals and along shipping routes.
