Biosfera XXI has been using EMODnet data since 2016, mainly for its marine projects, in particular, the environmental impact assessment project “The electricity interconnection across the Biscay Gulf".
In a recent research paper (Effrosynidis et al., 2018), the Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH) aggregated CMEMS and EMODnet data to investigate the influence of environmental conditions on the presence-absence and the distribution of seagrass species over the Mediterranean Sea
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.
Symphony is a tool used by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SwAM) to assess the cumulative impact of human activity in Swedish waters. In this operation, EMODnet Geology and the Bathymetry portals provided with good knowledge of the distribution of geological substrate types.
The development of EMODnet standard classifications for the various categories of seabed substrate allowed a digital map layer covering Russian, Finnish and Estonian waters to contribute towards the Gulf of Finland assessment published in 2016. This was one of the most important outcomes of the Gulf of Finland Year arranged by the three countries in 2014.
We’re excited to announce the release of a new data product available on EMODnet Chemistry: a collection of new digital maps of contaminants. These maps visualise data from more than 100 data providers, following intense work by EMODnet Chemistry of data aggregation, harmonization, analysis and...
We’re delighted to announce the release of a new data product available on EMODnet Human Activities: traffic density maps. Based on AIS data from ships, these maps were prepared by the European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) in response to a series of ad-hoc requests to complement specific studies...
