Case Study


The European Multidisciplinary Seafloor and water-column Observatory (EMSO) is a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) that includes open-ocean, seafloor observatories down to 4.850 metres depth, and shallow-water test sites from the Northeast Atlantic, across the Mediterranean to the Black Sea. EMSO ERIC is trying to solve the challenge to provide access to curated data and offer high-quality services to a large and diverse group of users, from scientists and industries to institutions and policymakers, through the EMSO ERIC Data Platform. To support this challenge, EGI contributed to operating different EMSO ERIC services including the data portal which received thousands of visits from different countries.

Joaquin del Rio Fernandez (UPC), Head of Obsea Observatory says:“Thanks to the collaboration with EGI we expect to improve our data collection and outreach services to the general public and scientific community who access Obsea data. For our Obsea infrastructure, such collaboration is really very important to keep marine data generation alive!”.
