EMODnet Geology partner Geological Survey of Ireland (GSI) will organise a session on seafloor mapping at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, the largest geoscience meeting in the world. The meeting will take place in San Francisco, from 9 until 13 December 2019.
The EMODnet Geology team recently released a series of products related to topics including Seafloor geology, Marine minerals, Seabed substrates, Geological Events and Probabilities and Submerged landscape features.
EMODnet’s second Open Sea Lab (OSLII) was officially launched on 24th May in Brussels, at a kick-off event that marked the opening of applications for OSLII, which takes place in the vibrant and historic city of Ghent from 4 - 6 of September, 2019.
The purpose is to evaluate the performance and functioning of the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). The findings of the evaluation will be used to guide activities undertaken in support of marine knowledge in the remaining years 2019-2020 of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and to feed into the preparatory process for a possible follow-up post 2020.
The three data layers released today on seafloor geology by EMODnet Geology show the underlying geology from the Ancient Past (more than 2500 Million years ago) to modern Quaternary deposits and geomorphological features.
This is an online meeting restricted to members of the EMODnet Steering Committee. Members of the EMODnet Technical Working Group (TWG) and the EC Marine Knowledge Expert Group (MKEG) will join for the morning session.
These are online meetings restricted to members of the EMODnet Technical Working Group (TWG).These meetings will take place back to back with the 14th EMODnet Steering Committee meeting taking place on Monday 19 April 2021.
The European Commission, in association with the European External Action Service (EEAS), invites ocean stakeholders worldwide to the presentation of the final recommendations for ocean sustainability action by the EU's International Ocean Governance (IOG) Forum.
