EMODnet plays a role in building the first submarine electricity interconnection between Spain and France

EMODnet is assisting the building of the infrastructure supporting a set of studies, carried out in accordance with the Spanish Environmental Impact Assessment procedure, needed to make the territorial and environmental diagnosis of the effects caused by the project. One example of these studies is represented by the paper published by the consultancy company Biosfera XX Estudios Ambientales where the data made available by EMODnet Bathymetry, Human activities and Seabed Habitats have been used.

Centralised public access to high quality bathymetry and sediment data facilitates SMEs both for consultancy work, outreach and service development

The availability of both depth data and geology data from one centralised point of contact (EMODnet) enabled Irwin Carr Consulting, an SME that provides specialist services that range from environmental noise, air quality, building acoustics and underwater noise, to be competitive and have efficient turn-around times on marine projects that otherwise would be delayed by prohibitively costly marine mapping work prior to impact assessments.

Supporting sustainable fisheries management practices and the recovery of fish stocks through EMODnet

HeraSpace used EMODnet Human Activities as a data source to feed their neural machine-learning algorithm, which has been designed within the European Space Agency Business Centre in Madrid. The goal is to avoid that vessels might fish in vulnerable or restricted areas, by detecting their coordinates and excluding them from the predictions.

Capitalising on EMODnet Radar Data for Water Dispersion Studies

Leveraging on the EMODnet radar data, PM_TEN, an Italian, technology-transfer company active in the Environmental Physics field, has released a new service for its customers (as part of an environmental impact assessment package) which uses EMODnet radar data to integrate the output of numerical circulation models and provide a solid and validated input to oil spill models.

EMODnet & CMEMS together to build a framework for improving land boundary conditions in CMEMS regional products

The EMODnet River data service provided by EMODnet Physics will support the LAMBDA (LAnd-Marine Boundary Development and Analysis) project to demonstrate the quality of modelling results produced by the watershed models. The EMODnet river service will enhance the Copernicus Marine Environment Monitoring Service (CMEMS) by aiding in watershed models validation and quality control thus improving their forecast services.

Making the establishment of regional oceanography systems easy: the Basque case

The challenge of the EuskOOS operational oceanography system of the Basque coast is to disseminate the marine data collected from the Basque Country making them part of global efforts. Instead of building the system from scratch, EuskOOS decided to reuse the widget made available by EMODnet Physics such as the data products and the map sharing service to build its regional operational oceanography system. EuskOOS is also now one of the EMODnet contributors, providing data of the coastal observing system into the European Marine Observation and Data Network.

ICES and EMODnet Chemistry providing a comprehensive European data source for the European Environment Agency

Now the approach would be to use ICES and EMODnet Chemistry to provide a comprehensive European data source for the European Environment Agency Marine Indicators on contaminants (Biota) and Eutrophication (Chla, Nutrients) and a pipeline on oxygen saturation.

Assessing progress towards an ecologically coherent MPA network in Secretary of State waters in 2016

JNCC produced a ‘Combined Map’ integrating data from field survey maps (mostly from the EUNIS habitat datasets collection) and the most recent version of the EMODnet Seabed Habitats broad-scale predictive habitat map available at that time. The Combined Map is a single flat layer without overlaps between habitats or component datasets, making it suitable and efficient for area calculations.

Applying modelled, broad scale habitat maps in MPA network evaluations: the Western Mediterranean Sea Case Study

The pan-European map presenting the distribution of modelled broad scale seabed habitats (EUSeaMap v2016) made available through the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project, was crucial in the assessment recently performed by ISPRA in collaboration with the European Environment Agency to compile information on the distribution of all  marine broad-scale habitats for the whole Western Mediterranean basin.

EMODnet Biology helps preventing the introduction of non-indigenous species

Non-indigenous species (NIS) introduced by human activities are organisms moved into new areas outside their natural range by, for example, transfer of ships’ ballast water, biofouling and aquaculture. The EMODnet biology data were used to assess the trends in new records of NIS introductions into the OSPAR Maritime Area...
