The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet)

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) consists of more than 120 organisations assembling marine data, products and metadata to make these fragmented resources more available to public and private users relying on quality-assured, standardised and harmonised marine data which are interoperable and free of restrictions on use. EMODnet is currently in its third development phase with the target to be fully deployed by 2020.

A spotlight on the EMODnet bathymetry portal: innovations and results

Bathymetric data, in essence information about the water depth and underwater topography of oceans and seas, is important in many aspects of marine research, administration and spatial planning as well as for management of marine and coastal environments and their resources. In coastal areas societal needs are at the forefront: safety of vessel navigation is the most prioritized rationale for bathymetric mapping close to the coast, around shoals and along shipping routes.

EMODnet Stakeholder Conference and Sea-basins Workshops

How fit for purpose is Europe's marine data infrastructure? How accessible and interoperable are the data? Where are the gaps in monitoring? A series of stress tests in Europe's seabasins have been underway for the past three years. Join our upcoming stakeholder conference when the results of these stress-tests will be presented and discussed to consider the way forward.

A New Year and a New Phase for EMODnet

2016 was a very productive and pivotal year as we came to the end of the 2nd EMODnet development phase (2013-2016). During this phase, EMODnet evolved from a series of prototype data portals to a mature and operational service covering all European sea-basins. EMODnet data portals now serve more data and products covering all sea-basins to an increasing and widening range of users than ever before.
