Scope

The scope of this challenge was to check the fitness for use of the current available marine data sets to follow up on the sea-level rise and sediment balance per stretch of coast of the BlackSea, over the past 10, 50 and 100 years, or to indicate gaps in the current EU data collection framework.

This activity of the EU BlackSea checkpoint project (DG MARE contract n° EASME/EMFF/2014/1.3.1.3/LOT4/SI2.709436) was executed during the 2015-2018 period of time. The methodology used was identical for all challenges.

  • Production of a literature survey to identify state of the art activities related to the use case and clarify the landscape of monitoring data covering the BlackSea;
  • Specification of needs for production and realisation of the product;
  • Evaluation of the adequacy of monitoring data, that is their availability and appropriateness.

The team participating in the challenge were:

  • University of Plymouth, UPL, United Kingdom (Leader)
  • Institute of Оceanology, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, IO-BAS, Bulgaria
  • Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski, USOF, Bulgaria
  • Ukrainian Scientific Centre of Ecology of the Sea, UkrSCES, Ukraine
  • Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University, TSU, Georgia
  • Institute of Marine Sciences, Middle East Technical University, IMS, Turkey
  • P.P. Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, Russian Academy of Sciences, SIO-RAS, Russia

Use limitation and reference

The EMODnet Black Sea Checkpoint practical outputs are the results of the assessment exercise carried out by the so-called “challenges” specified by the call for tenders n° MARE/2014/09 aimed at determining how well the input data from the observing and monitoring systems that existed at the sea basin scale fit the user needs to address the challenge.

This product and any resultant data produced was a consequence of these tests and provided on an “as is” basis. The information contained in the data products and in the descriptions (metadata) of the input data and of the data products making use of them was believed to be trustworthy. However, its completeness, consistency, accuracy, and usability cannot be guaranteed. Whilst every effort was made to ensure its reliability within the limits of present knowledge, no responsibility can be accepted by those involved in its compilation or publication for any consequential loss or damage arising from its use.
