EMODnet Human Activities facilitating pipeline route selection

As is often the case with human activity, pipelines can be extremely useful, while at the same time very dangerous. EMODnet Human Activities recently created a dataset on offshore pipelines. Albeit incomplete, the dataset shows the true potential of EMODnet.

Making marine data available to the global scientific community: the UG-MESA marine services case

The University of Ghana deployed a wave rider buoy near the Cape Verde islands for collection of in-situ data on ocean parameters such as wave height and sea surface temperature for validation purposes. In order to make this data available to the global scientific community, collaboration was established with EMODnet Physics to host this data on their distribution platform. The impact of this collaboration has been tremendous, as the data is made easily accessible to both African and European partner institutions, as well as other users.

EMODnet compliance with the INSPIRE Directive: a matter of fact

The EMODnet Chemistry portal has tested the application of INSPIRE Data Specifications to model nutrient data (MSFD Criterion D5C1 “Nutrients concentrations in water”) in the Mediterranean Sea. The use case builds on the Technical Guidelines related to Environmental Monitoring Facilities (EMF) and Oceanographic Geographical Features (OF) themes and to the Observations and Measurement (O&M) data model and was developed in collaboration with the SeaDataCloud and MEDCIS projects. The exercise demonstrated the completeness of EMODnet Chemistry metadata with respect to INSPIRE requirements and the feasibility to map EMODnet to INSPIRE models.

Validation of SAR satellite based information products (wave height) and combination with EMODnet station data (Significant Wave Height HS )

With data of EMODnet Physics portal, DFD is validating the wave parameter of significant wave height HS (which is derived from satellite imagery e.g., from Sentinel-1) at DFD’s ground station in Neustrelitz. Currently the validation chain for SAR derived wind and wave products based on the EMODnet measurement station network is being developed. First results show the benefit for the service validation in general.

EMODnet Seabed Habitats is crucial in assessing the extent of physical damage to benthic habitats in the North-East Atlantic

EMODnet Seabed Habitats data enabled the mapping of potential disturbance to benthic habitats due to fishing in the north-east Atlantic. The assessment was part of the wider OSPAR Intermediate Assessment 2017, which evaluates the status of the marine environment of the North-East Atlantic.

Mediterranean Wind Wave Model

It is not an easy task for a met-ocean data user to clearly understand which data have been used in the calibration / validation phase of the hindcast database, the use of EMODnet Physics as the main source for observed marine data collection is highlighted in the description of the DHI’s MWM product.

Exploiting citizen science for collecting data on marine biodiversity

Wildsea Europe Route offers tourists access to routes connecting European coastal destinations that allow them to learn about marine wildlife and participate actively in conservation efforts; including the collection and propagation of marine biodiversity data. “Citizen science” activities such as these are increasingly being recognised as an important source of information with the potential to contribute to our knowledge of the sea and increase participants’ sense of responsibility and ownership of the marine environment.
