Data inventory

Starting from known initiatives and networks
  • Goal of inventory
    • Identify existing marine biological datasets
  • How to accomplish?
    • Contact partner networks

      • MARS Network (European Biological Research Stations and Institutes) and data legacy FP6 MarBEF
      • ICES data centre
      • Pangaea World Data Centre
      • IBSS and Black Sea Biological Network
      • SeaDataNet
mars network and data legacy fp6 marbef

Data inventory

MARS Network and data legacy FP6 MarBEF
  • Data collected through
    • FP5 Biomare (2000-2002)
    • FP6 MarBEF (2004-2009)
    • MARS partners (2009-2010)
  • Data inventory:
    • Total of 257 datasets
    • Sent to over 100 people
    • Question 1: knowledge of additional data?
    • Question 2: data available for EurOBIS-EMODNet?
    • Average response (±30%)

Data inventory

Identifying long-term marine monitoring datasets
  • Additional search for long-term biological data series
  • Two approaches
    • National marine biological monitoring
    • Regional marine biological monitoring
  • Work in progress

Workshops:

    • Biological Data Products Workshop (25-26/02/2010)
    • Aim:
      • To define a set of derived data products (a.o. target species maps)

relevant for private bodies, public authorities and researchers

      • Discuss the marine biological (monitoring) data availability in Europe

and gaps

      • Present protoype portal to wide(r) community of European

Biological Experts and capture feedback

EMODnet

slide28

Biological Data Products Workshop (Participants)

        • MARE, DG Research, OSPAR, ICES, HELCOM, Black Sea Commission, coordinators of the

other lots, project partners and advisory board

Biological Data Products Workshop (Outcomes):

    • Workshop report in progr. recommendations for future work (data products, analysis)
    • Data products:
        • Species attributes (Identify species by tags: invasives, HAB’s)
        • Species distribution maps (maps based on actual data + prediction and possible range)
        • Time-related maps (map growth, biomass, size-structures on yearly, seasonally, monthly)
        • Sensitivity and vulnerability maps (Abiotic parameters needed, expert judgement necessary)

Conclusions – data inventory

Discuss the marine biological (monitoring) data availability in Europe and gaps

  • Good progress towards complete biological data inventory for EU
  • Ongoing => more information expected
  • Need to bring actual data together

Keep in mind…

      • Embargo period for research data
      • Regional reporting of national data => double entries!
      • Presence versus abundance/biomass data
      • Certain information needed for good integration
slide31

Conclusions

  • Biological national monitoring data
  • Very few monitoring programmes cover all groups (benthos, plankton, birds, …)= Gaps in taxonomic coverage
  • Temporal span: start 70’s, 80’s, 90’s = no real historical data (pre-50’s)
  • Comparison between national programmes? = e.g. sampling methodologies identical or comparable?
  • Fine-tuning of national programmes on European level?

Indicate timetable for rest of project
  • Test and upgrade portal
  • Organization of data –analysis workshops for creation of specific data-products and data layers
  • Interoperability and OGC/INSPIRE compliancy - link to other portals
  • Formulate recommandations for future (worskhop report,...)

EMODnet

slide35

Feedback from potential users?

    • Who will test the portal and provide feedback – workshop participants
  • Unexpected difficulties?
    • Nothing unexpected: Incomplete inventories, unwillingness to participate, inertia
  • Information from other ur-emodnet projects
    • Specific needs in data products that will be developped
