To understand the full benefits of EMODnet, users are kindly asked to describe how EMODnet supports them in their daily work and activities.
If you have developed an application using EMODnet products that you would like to share with us or if you use EMODnet data for other purposes, submit your use case by contacting email@example.com.
One of the main goals of OceanGliders, as part of GOOS, is to monitor and promote the activity of the glider observing network. The goal is not to provide data, but to document and give guidance on how to share someone’s glider activity, in order to raise their visibility and the visibility of gliders as whole, as concerns long-term sustained observing for societal benefit.
With over 300,000 water column profiles, in both coastal and deep sea areas, the National Oceanographic Data Centre at OGS manages the most comprehensive marine data storage in Italy. The multidisciplinary archive includes data since 1909 up to now. It ranges from physics to chemistry, from biology and geology to meteorology. Data are mainly collected by Italian institutions within the Mediterranean Sea basin, but also by other countries within neighbouring sea basins. Near real-time data are consistently integrated into the historical archive.
Collaboration between EMODnet Biology, EMODnet Seabed Habitats and OBIS (Ocean Biodiversity Information System) has facilitated richer dataset publication and ensured the greatest volume of high-quality species and habitat data are available for reporting, assessments and informed decision making.
The Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) has developed a first version of a web application with the “Total Sea Level” variable from EMODnet Physics. This solution presents a demonstrator of end-user application and decisional support dashboard systems to support public authorities in their daily management activities.
A joint Copernicus Marine and EMODnet data catalogue for the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) has been developed. It gathers all relevant marine data products from Copernicus Marine Serviceand EMODnet for all the MSFD descriptors (except Descriptor 4) in the Baltic Sea.
SOCIB Dapp is a web based client application, developed by the SOCIB Data Centre, intended to display and download deployments data either from SOCIB or third party portals such as EMODnet and Copernicus Marine. Dapp provides additional features such as: Browsing and displaying any deployments made by SOCIB, creating customized maps with several deployments and WMS map layers.
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.
Outcomes: Users were able to apply a marine ecosystem services model to the Lithuanian sea to identify areas where anthropogenic impacts most greatly affected valuable fish provisioning areas and cultural coastal regions. Authors stated the information was particularly useful for regional authorities to apply an ecosystem-based management approach to marine spatial planning.
How EMODnet Seabed Habitats helped the user: EMODnet provided best available and free substrate data for the Lithuanian portion of the Baltic Sea.
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.
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.
