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
Undertaking a regional cumulative impact assessment requires a vast amount of spatial data. EUSeaMap v2016 was a key data source for defining ecosystem components in reporting on the 2011-2016 HELCOM ‘State of the Baltic Sea’.
EMODnet is assisting the building of the infrastructure supporting a set of studies, carried out in accordance with the Spanish Environmental Impact Assessment procedure, needed to make the territorial and environmental diagnosis of the effects caused by the project. One example of these studies is represented by the paper published by the consultancy company Biosfera XX Estudios Ambientales where the data made available by EMODnet Bathymetry, Human activities and Seabed Habitats have been used.
JNCC produced a ‘Combined Map’ integrating data from field survey maps (mostly from the EUNIS habitat datasets collection) and the most recent version of the EMODnet Seabed Habitats broad-scale predictive habitat map available at that time. The Combined Map is a single flat layer without overlaps between habitats or component datasets, making it suitable and efficient for area calculations.
The pan-European map presenting the distribution of modelled broad scale seabed habitats (EUSeaMap v2016) made available through the EMODnet Seabed Habitats project, was crucial in the assessment recently performed by ISPRA in collaboration with the European Environment Agency to compile information on the distribution of all marine broad-scale habitats for the whole Western Mediterranean basin.
EMODnet Seabed Habitats data enabled the mapping of potential disturbance to benthic habitats due to fishing in the north-east Atlantic. The assessment was part of the wider OSPAR Intermediate Assessment 2017, which evaluates the status of the marine environment of the North-East Atlantic.
The National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS), on behalf of the SeaDataCloud partnership, is pleased to invite you to the SeaDataCloud User Workshop, which will be held via webinar.
The workshop “Marine data to support aquaculture in the North Atlantic”, jointly organised by EATiP, DG MARE, DG DEFIS, Copernicus Marine and EMODnet, will be held on October 20 and 21 (both days from 10 to 13 CET) as a virtual and highly interactive event, using tools for on-line discussions and co-creation.
The EMODnet Secretariat seeks to recruit an enthusiastic and motivated web developer to strengthen the Secretariat in supporting the partnership to improve the availability and accessibility of marine data in Europe.
