  • 13. Marine RIs Significant support from RIs actions + (past) RTD projects e.g. MAST… technological challenges due to hostile envt Ship based exploration  multiplatform Innovation (e.g. gliders, new sensors incl. biochemical) Delayed data  quasi-real time Interrelated approaches & scales: in situ/remote - observation/modelling – local/regional/global – short- term/long-term - multidisciplinary “Dual” use: research / operational incl. monitoring (EU directives MSFD, Fisheries, GMES, GEOSS…) and… exploitation? Well organised community (EU & intl) – yet very distributed nature of some of the RIs: towards an "EOOS" (expert group on MRIs)?

  • 14. SeaDataNet partner countriesNODCs + ICES + IOC-IODE + EU-JRC + technical experts (Slides from Dick M.A. Schaap – MARIS, SeaDataNet Technical Coordinator)
  • 15. Building a Pan-European infrastructure for ocean and marine data management• 2002 – 2005: Sea-Search project (EU funding 3 ME) • Networking NODCs from 30 countries around European seas: Focus on metadata• 2006 – 2011: SeaDataNet project (EU funding 9 ME) • Connecting 40 NODCs from 35 countries around European Seas: harmonisation of metadata services and unified access to distributed archived data via central portal• 2011 – 2015: SeaDataNet II project (EU funding 6 ME) • robustness of services; machine-to-machine interfacing for specific communities; real-time data exchange; full INSPIRE compliance; improved capability for marine biological data
  • 16. SeaDataNet infrastructure - services• Discovery services = Metadata directories• Delivery services = Data access & downloading of data sets• Viewing services = Visualisation of metadata, data and data products• Product services = Generic and standard products• Monitoring services = Statistics on usage and performance of thesystem• Security services = Authentication, Authorization & Administration• Maintenance services = Updating by Data Centres• A network of interconnected Data Centres and a central Portal, that givesusers access to the various SeaDataNet services, and information on datamanagement standards, tools and protocols.• Versatile tools for editing (MIKADO, NEMO, ..), analysis, interpolation andpresentation of SeaDataNet data output (ODV, DIVA)
  • 17. Common Data Index (CDI) Data Discovery and Access Service CDI is a fine-grained index to individual data measurements. The CDI Service provides users a highly detailed insight and unified access to the large volumes of marine and oceanographic data sets An intelligent middle tier connection is configured between the SeaDataNet portal and the local data management systems at each of the data centres. A shopping basket allows users to submit a shopping request for multiple data providers in one go and to follow its processing by each of the providers via an online transaction register. Providers include a data access restriction label in the CDI metadata which determines immediate access or negotiations in combination with the registered role of the user Data are delivered to users in standard SeaDataNet formats (ODV ASCII and NetCDF (CF))
  • 18. (FP6) SeaDataNetl A successful data infrastructure è Enhancing the results of previous EC projects and initiatives on which it has been built è Bringing together the main European and Mediterranean NODCs and marine research institutes è Developing a common data infrastructure providing access to their data and metadata è Developing vocabularies and directories that are becoming the reference ones for marine sciences è Well integrated and/or cooperating with all the most relevant marine initiatives and projects as well as other environmental data initiatives è Strong impact on new initiatives, many of them adopting SDN architecture and solutions
