Report
EMODnet Chemistry 2
3rd Steering Committee
Hotel Park, Split (Croatia),
20 June 2014
Project Management (WP0) and administrative issues:
• The Service Contract (signed 16/8/2013), the CA (signed) and 10
Subcontracts over 14 signed (MHI, UkrSCES, IBSS, YugNIRO missing)
• 4 mailing lists: [email protected], emodnet2-
[email protected], [email protected],
[email protected]
• Website under restyling. Data layer for the main page?
CDI: zoom to tender parameter groups in the European Seas
OceanBrowser: update titles for user friendliness
Update banner in the access and viewing services
• Extranet for the project: continuously updated. More?

Project Management (WP0) and administrative issues:
• First interim report… Should include summary of work done and what
remains to be done, challenged faced, effort spent on data preparing and
providing, developing standards (M12, M24, M36).
• All partners should provide within 6/7/2014 a short summary of their
activities, including:
Work done in the first year
Work expected in the next two years
Difficulties encountered
Effort spent on data access, data management and standards
development
• How to deal with existing events of non-fulfillment of contractual
obligations such as meeting attendance, carrying out of activity, report
submission?

How to increase communication and feedback?
With partnership
• mailing lists, extranet (working area), web portal
• videoconferences and ad hoc meetings
• next plenary meeting (Istanbul? June 2015?)
• next Steering Committee (where? December 2014?)
With stakeholders (WP5)
• too difficult to involve DG ENV, EEA, RSCs
What else?
EMODnet Chemistry 2 – 3rd Steering Committee, 20 June 2014
EMODnet Secretariat:
Jan-Bart Calewaert, Liesbeth Renders (Seascape Consultants, UK)
was commissioned (MARE/2012/15) to coordinate and support
(i) the monitoring of EMODnet projects,
(ii) the dissemination of their results,
(iii) the analysis of user feedback and statistics.
Organised EMODnet Steering Committee (secretariat, 7 lots, 2
checkpoints, DG MARE). 1st meeting: JPI Oceans,16-17/12/2013
and 2nd meeting: CNR, 4-5/6/2014
Output: development of Entry Portal, 3 SC meeting per year

Data collection and metadata compilation in sea regions
(WP1):
●
●
●
●
●
Overview of the data collection from the regional leaders (10
min. each): progress and difficulties
Way forward for the data central buffer (Dick Schaap)
Vocabularies extensions for EMODnet Chemistry scope (P35,
tender parameter groups)
Schedule for the second year (M15 data, M18 harvesting, M20
products)
Priority list (parameters/matrices): biota is only Mytilus
galloprovincialis?
EMODnet Chemistry 2 – 3rd Steering Committee, 20 June 2014
Data Products generation in sea regions (WP2):
●
Progress and difficulties for the first set of classic products (DIVA
maps and TS plots)
●
How to deal with results from the pilot phase?
●
DIVA Maps at the appropriate time period: focus to selected areas
●
Consolidate work flow to identify appropriate TS
●
●
●
Use of CHASE assessment tool with EMODnet data in the North sea
and eventually selected pilot areas (as WMS layer) to be loaded into
OceanBrowser (Martin M. Larsen)
Products for Regions with more than 1 MSFD region
Use cases in the Central Portal: how to provide data or data
products?
EMODnet Chemistry 2 – 3rd Steering Committee, 20 June 2014
QA/QC - Validation - MSFD interaction (WP3):
●
Status in data products validation process with local experts
(regional leaders),
●
Feedback from Expert WS on data products validation,
●
Strategy for the next Expert WS,
●
Inventory of QC procedures at NODCs, possible extensions
●
●
Do we have enough data (i.e. local statistics) for the QC of
parameters in sediment and biota?
No MSFD official boundaries but EMODnet sea regions
EMODnet Chemistry 2 – 3rd Steering Committee, 20 June 2014
Portal development and operation (WP4):
• dynamic Time Series: layer with Stations and Graphics to be
integrated into OceanBrowser, how to improve selection
• vertical sections properly exposed in the OceanBrowser
• implementation of P35 vocab on Odv and Sextant
• tender parameters categories (e.g. fertilizers, pesticides and
biocides... ) used for data and products
• Sextant improvement in user-friendliness of services (products
search including sea regions)
• WMS/WFS sharing between Emodnet Physics and Chemistry
EMODnet Chemistry 2 – 3rd Steering Committee, 20 June 2014
Portal development and operation (WP4):
• cloud hosting for data buffers as offered by Cineca
Additional developments as discussed at the first TWG:
•
new functionality in the CDI User Interface for searching based on
the distance along the coastline
How to add value to coastal stations?
• Additional data plotting along (or near) the coastline to valorize
coastal data (with classes of value) loaded in OceanBrowser
• New punctual visualizations planned with classes of values
EMODnet Chemistry 2 – 3rd Steering Committee, 20 June 2014
Analyses and Recommendations (WP5):
●
Definition of the user panel + questionnaire together with SDN, to
collect specific MSFD feedback
WP Objectives:
• To engage with MSFD stakeholders and align/revise chemical
portal and products through dialogue
• To identify key users and report on the effectiveness of the system
in meeting the needs of end-users
•
To provide a summary feedback to WP2 (data products)
• To analyse what further steps need to be taken for improvement,
expansion and sustainability: lessons learned, interoperability and
cross-comparison
•
To establish efficient tools to obtain users feedback
