EMODnet Chemistry has improved the questionnaire to obtain information on sampling/analytical methods and quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) procedures for contaminants in seawater, sediment and biota. The updated questionnaire was recently sent to all institutes providing data to EMODnet Chemistry, in order to improve and update.
The EMODnet Biology team is happy to announce the successful outcome of its initiative to engage volunteers to rescue a selection of identified historical biological data using citizen science platforms.
EMODnet together with EC DG MARE are organizing a series of two online workshops on “EMODnet marine data for the offshore renewable energy sector”. The first workshop on 20-21 September 2022 focused on the Northeast Atlantic, North Sea and Baltic Sea.
EMODnet Chemistry has significantly expanded the new edition of the guidelines entitled "Updated guidelines for SeaDataNet ODV production: Eutrophication & Contaminants". The just published manual explains to data providers which standards, tools and software provided by the SeaDataNet infrastructure are adopted by EMODnet Chemistry to harmonise and validate data. A list of the most important problems and common errors and how to solve or avoid them is also part of the guide.
EMODnet Human Activities participated in the second Community of Practice workshop of the European project Emerging ecosystem-based Maritime Spatial Planning topics in North and Baltic Sea Regions (eMSP NBSR) on "Coherence of the MSP data and information". The aim of the eMSP NBSR project is to enable maritime spatial planners from the North and Baltic Sea regions to reflect on current MSP practices, to learn effectively from each other, and to collectively identify problems and solutions.
