EMODnet Seabed Habitats supports ecological modelling in Southern Italy

The National Interuniversity Consortium for Marine Science (CoNISMa) conducted a study to assess the natural capital across the Gulf of Naples and the wider Campania region, areas of importance to Italy’s economy. EMODnet Seabed Habitats broad-scale habitat map for Europe (EUSeaMap 2019) supported the authors’ research by providing vital data on habitat boundaries within the broader Campania region. This resource allowed the authors to identify four main macro-habitats which could be used to quantify the value of marine natural capital stocks.

EMODnet Physics’ integrated wind, wave and sea level data supports Coastal Infrastructure Risks and Safety Management in South Italy [GRISIS research project]

Wind, wave and sea level data are valuable sources under the GRISIS multidisciplinary and holistic analysis of natural risks. EMODnet Physics is making available aggregated and easy to use products that can be easily machine-to-machine integrated into the innovative multi-risk technological platform for management and mitigation of multiple risks that GRISIS project is developing in order to build resilence plans and infrastructure in South Italy.

EMODnet-Physics a win-win cooperation with OceanOPS to improve performance monitoring for Ocean Observing Platforms, data and information systems

In close collaboration with OceanOPS, EMODnet Physics is connecting multiple data sources with the OceanOPS metadata repository thanks to the unique identification system managed by OceanOPS. This is automatically reducing the duplication issues related to multi data sources and increasing the quality of the information system developed by EMODnet Physics. At the same time, EMODnet Physics is connecting OceanOPS to networks that are not yet under its radar to continuously improve the monitoring of the Ocean Observing systems operating in the global ocean.
