Everyone collecting data and information on the distribution of marine and brackish water species in Europe can make a valuable contribution to EMODnet.
EMODnet welcomes different kinds of data and information:
If you would be interested in contributing in any way to EMODnet, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In your email, please specify what exactly you would like to share with us and in what format the data or data products are available (e.g. Excel, Access, GIS application...). If it concerns a large dataset or a dataset that is regularly updated, please inform us on how you think this could easily be shared (e.g. through DiGIR or IPT or sending extracts). With this basic information, we can suggest possible ways forward to get the data integrated into EMODnet.
If you would like to contribute dataset descriptions, you can do so through our online dataset submission form or by contacting us directly (email@example.com).
Do you know of any marine biological datasets (species occurrence, abundance and biomass) from the European seas that are sitting in an old paper report, a computer disk from the 1980's or a pdf, and are in need of rescuing?
The EMODnet Work Package 4 is working on digitizing these valuable historical datasets to make them available to the marine community.
If you would like to alert us about a dataset, please use the form below to submit some basic information about the data, or contact Sarah Faulwetter via firstname.lastname@example.org. An e-mail should contain the following information on the dataset:
