SMP28

The Splinter meeting is organized by SeaDataCloud partnership aims to present practically the different components of the SeaDataNet infrastructure: data services (discovery interface), metadata services and software tools (ODV and DIVA). The goal is to promote to the marine scientific community the SeaDataNet infrastructure, a very useful toolkit and collaborative workspace for supporting their research.

The SeaDataCloud is an EU H2020 programme, aims at considerably advancing SeaDataNet infrastructure and increasing its usage, adopting cloud and High Performance Computing technology for better performance.
SeaDataNet connects together more than 100 National Oceanographic Data Centres (NODC’s) from 34 coastal states in Europe. At the moment SeaDataNet gives access to more than 2.0 million data sets for physical oceanography, chemistry, geology, geophysics, bathymetry and biology.

The key components of the infrastructure are:

-data services: data from more than 100 data centres active in data collection from ocean observation is available by means of a unique point of access. The architecture is based on a semi-distributed system with the central portal that provides the indexing services based on xml files, called CDI, complaint with ISO 19115 - ISO 19139 standard. The data standard formats are ODV (Ocean Data View) and NetCDF (CF).

-metadata services: SeaDataNet portal provides with free access an overview of the Marine organisations in Europe and their involvement in scientific cruises, data collection and marine projects.

-software tools: the project updates and makes software tools available allowing the data providers to perform their core functions like: data and metadata formatting, their transformation, analysis and finally their publishing.
