Outputs and recommendations from the Mediterranean Sea-basin Checkpoint Workshop

  1. 1. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results 1 EMODnet Stakeholder Conference & Sea-basin Workshops 14-15 February 2017 MedSea Checkpoint breakout session
  2. 2. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results 2 Agenda Presentations MedSea Checkpoint final gap analysis (N. Pinardi) BlackSea status of development (A. Palasov) The MedSeaTargeted Products (S. Simoncelli) BlackSea intermediate assessment results (A. Palasov) MedSea final DAR and recommendations (G. Manzella) Discussion
  3. 3. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results 3 Discussion on general points What do you think of the CKP methodology? interesting approach, more Challenges are probably needed Suggested is atmospheric deposition data sets. Suggested is aquaculture Another is contaminant accumulation in sediments and biota Need to add a quality element that will assess the quality of the input data sets Need to evaluate CKP product quality Need also to assess complementarity of input data sets in a product Hpw would you continue the CKP effort? What would be the time scale? Need to maintain a good balance between private and public sector needs A 5 years time framework for the planning of the continuation could be a correct timeframe
  4. 4. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results 4 Discussion on MedSea recommendations Recommendation XX: (critical) include in, or develop new, EMODnet Portals for sediment mass balance. Data are at the moment not available for the Challenge products (also in the North Sea) Discussion: Sediment mass balance data are local but a regional approach is necessary Interface with the Coastal Mapping Portal to initiate planning of new data collection might be a way EMODnet should properly interface with the hydrological monitoring community, data collection practices not standard for the river stations develop a new scheme for monitoring the sediment mass balance on the basis of satellite multi- or hyper- spectral sensors in a complementary way to in situ data sets and connect it to coastal morphodynamics modelling and predictions. (Land Copernicus service for water levels)
  5. 5. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results 5 Discussion on MedSea recommendations Recommendation XX: (critical) include in, or develop new, EMODnet Portals for fishery data. Data are at the moment not easily available, not in the proper form and coverage/resolution is very inadequate for Challenge products Discussion: For Fishery, an EMODnet initiative should also focus on capacity building for data collection best practises and common tools of data analysis For fishing vessel track data sets, data are collected at very different time resolution, new standards should be established that are common New maritime traffic data sets should be made available to the Portals, connect with new SAT-AIS ESA initiative and EMSA
  6. 6. EMODnet Sea-basin Checkpoints Results 6 Discussion: MedSea recommendations Recommendation XX: (critical) improve the habitat databases and the wave data set assembly and start new collection Discussion: for wave data set the gap comes from in situ and modelling data. It is suggested that it would be interesting to have a wave data rescue initiative, wave data sets are probably not available in European waters before the 80s but still it is very important to have long time series HF radar data can fill the resolution gaps Habitat mapping new data collection is required Recommendation XX: Improve the EMODnet Portal Data Policy visibility and the Data Policy for specific data sets that are not downloadable
