EMODnet Chemistry at the 1st International Joint Conference MARBLUE 2022
From 26 to 28 October 2022, EMODnet Chemistry was in Constanța (Romania) at the hybrid conference . The event was organised by the National Institute for Marine Research and Development (NIMRD), GEOECOMAR and Ovidius University.
The aim of this international conference was to contribute to the protection of the Black Sea by supporting sustainable development in a multidisciplinary way. The conference provided a space for scientists and companies to discuss basic research and technological innovations to protect our seas and oceans. Luminita Buga from NIMRD, EMODnet Chemistry's regional coordinator for the Black Sea, explained that the Black Sea is one of the six European regional seas that provide data and metadata for EMODnet Chemistry. Free and open access to aggregated, standardised, validated data and data products for the Black Sea is available in the form of regional and global data collections and maps for eutrophication, contaminants, and marine litter through the EMODnet Chemistry web data portal.
