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.

EMODnet Chemistry: a point of reference for management of marine litter data in the context of the EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive

EMODnet Chemistry provided valuable contributions to the completion of  a Joint List of Litter Categories for Marine Macrolitter Monitoring that includes the litter types occurring in the coastal and marine environment. The list can be used to enable comparable monitoring across the European Seas and beyond, as well as across different compartments of the marine environment.

EMODnet Seabed Habitats contributes to the debate on the decommissioning of offshore infrastructure

This study was published by a group of authors, including representatives from a range of universities and research organisations. The lead author is the University Technology Sydney’s fish ecology lab, which aims to provide novel research to inform on the sustainability of the oceans and their fish populations. They actively engage in public debate on a wide range of issues affecting the marine environment, and also act as a hub for student research training. Their studie
