EMODnet Atlas of European Marine Life launched!

Date: 
1 January, 2019

The European Atlas of Marine Life presents a range of data products including tools, models and maps, illustrating the diverse range of outputs that can be generated from EMODnet Biology hosted data.

The available data and products are structured around the biological Essential Ocean Variables (EOVs) facilitating global interoperability and contributing to the aims of UN Sustainable Development Goal 14, the relevant Aichi Biodiversity Targets of the Convention on Biological Diversity and the activities focused around the UN Decade of Ocean Science (2021-2030). Hosted on the EMODnet Biology website (http://www.emodnet-biology.eu/about-atlas)) the products are the result of two years of focussed activity within Phase 3 of EMODnet Biology.  Through an iterative process of end-user engagement and focussed technical workshops the initial 14 data products (http://www.emodnet-biology.eu/toolbox/en/gallery/) represent a wide-range of demand-led data products, that help to answer fundamental and policy-driven questions related to managing the natural and anthropogenic impacts in European waters.
