- EMODnet Physics Data Portal – www.emodnet-physics.eu
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 Atlantic using the map viewer and selecting the Atlantic sea-basin subset.
Bathymetric data for the whole of Europe, including the Atlantic, 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 is based on these datasets, and is accessible for download through per tile the EMODnet Bathymetry Viewing and Download Service (i.e. map viewer).
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 areas.

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 Atlantic sea-basin.
The EMODnet Atlantic Checkpoint is a sea-basin monitoring system assessment activity aiming to support sustainable growth in the blue economy by assessing the potential of current marine observation and data services to address targeted end-user applications.The geographic coverage extends from the Atlantic Ocean north of the equator up to the Arctic Ocean and excluding the North Sea, but the pragmatic geographic approach is the EU economic zones.
The EMODnet Atlantic Checkpoint data stress test provides information about data adequacy for a number of pre-defined societal challenges (in case of the Atlantic, there are eleven challenges). The Checkpoint has adopted the Sextant webGIS system to store all metadata pertaining to challenge-related data in an Atlantic Checkpoint data catalogue. From this catalogue, a number of indicators can be computed to provide our commissioners and stakeholders with a picture of most salient data gaps in EU waters and beyond, whether they be spatial, temporal or semantic. The data portal provides access to the metadata for its own targeted products developed as well as those developed in/by? WP8 of the AtlantOS project. The catalogue is based on Sextant.
