SMHI has developed a new product to assesses changes in phytoplankton alpha diversity over the past two decades in the greater Baltic Sea area. Time series data of biodiversity can indicate the resilience of an ecosystem to environmental stressors, such as climate change or eutrophication. Monitoring phytoplankton biodiversity is crucial for understanding and safeguarding aquatic ecosystems, predicting and mitigating the impacts of climate change, promoting sustainable fisheries management, and...
Response and effect traits capture essential aspects of species biology and community ecology. Response traits help to understand how species are affected by and respond to environmental changes, while effect traits reveal the impact that species exert on their environment.
The EMOD-network participated in force at the second edition of the International Ocean Data Conference (IODC-II) on 20-21 March 2023 where the recent EMODnet unification of services was presented, together with dialogues on EMODnet’s contribution to FAIR data and the Global Ocean Data Ecosystem, together with its active input to the UN Ocean Decade Data and Information Strategy. EMODnet was also well represented at the 27th session of the International Oceanographic Data and Information...
The Open Sea Lab 3.0 took place in March 2023, with the main goal being for diverse users to test the newly unified EMODnet data services and to innovate solutions and applications using open-source marine data to address the key Ocean challenges.
On 17 March 2023, EMODnet was presented in detail at the Advanced Master in Sustainable Blue Economy during the lecture by Marina Lipizer, researcher at the National Oceanographic Data Centre, managed by the National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics - OGS.
The Stakeholder consultation enabled the EMODnet Chemistry Partnership to identify and analyse new needs and gaps. This information serves as the basis for refining and improving the collaboration, resulting in more complete, efficient and user-oriented data, data products and services.
The partners’ work throughout the Phase is finally being made available for all users. Products covering benthos presence/absence in the European Seas, invasive macroalgae modelling are available for subset and download.
The training session is aimed at marine ecologists, curators, data managers, students who are doing or planning to start research on curation and information extraction of marine ecological literature. Prior knowledge on programming is recommended.
