“ Marine biology data product - the story behind the product”

The workflows that are used to create the products within the Atlas of Marine Life are documented and available – they can be reused and anyone can further build upon the products for any purpose. For each data product, a documentation file based on a Markdown document, will be made available. All code is published on the EMODnet Gitub. Feedback can be posted using #emodnetbiology in Twitter

Ocean acidification (OA) has become one of the most studied topics in the last 15 years. The majority of the research published to date seems to suggest that some of the effects of ocean acidification could have dramatic consequences for ecosystems. The emerging evidence suggests that ocean acidification will act differently across species and there may be direct and indirect effects for ecosystems. The information gathered in this ‘proof of concept’ is to showcase what datasets are available and what is possible to distil from the combination of information. The time-series provided for pH helps to describe what are the current environmental conditions and variability of an area.

Probability of occurrence of different phytoplankton species in the North Sea. This product was created using DIVAnd, an interpolation method that takes into account several environmental variables and physical coastlines.
April 14, 2021
The project aims to produce comprehensive data product of the occurence and absence of (phyto)plankton species. As a basis, data from EMODnet Biology are used. The selection of relevant datasets is optimized in order to find all planktonic species, and exclude all species that are not planktonic. The occurences from EMODnet Biology were complemenented with absence data assuming fixed species lists within each dataset and year. The products are presented as maps of the distribution of the 100 most common species of (phyto)plankton in the Greater North Sea.
