1 Pan-European infrastructure for management of marine and ocean geological and geophysical data By Dick M.A. Schaap Geo-Seas Technical Coordinator March 2010 Supported by the European Commission FP7 - Research Infrastructures - Contract

2 Geo-Seas - background Geological and geophysical data for the seabed and sub-seabed are an important category of marine and oceanographic data, with many uses For Europe a major share of these observations is collected and analysed by national geological surveys and research institutions. In addition, substantial volumes of data are collected by industry, government departments, academia and environmental organisations. These data are often deposited with the geological surveys and research institutes. The national geological surveys, members of EuroGeoSurveys, have extensively sampled and surveyed the seabed and sub-seabed of the European seas over recent decades. Research institutes complement this with samples, cores and geophysical data, both from European seas and the world oceans. However, it is currently not possible to federate separate national databases because of different nomenclatures, reference levels, formats, scales and coordinate systems, hampering: Direct use of primary data in an integrated way Generation and dissemination of transboundary and multidisciplinary datasets, products and services

3 Geo-Seas present infrastructure EU-funded projects EuroCore, EUMarsin and EuroSeismics ( ) have resulted in the EU-SEASED metadata service, providing an inventory of seabed samples, cores, and seismic surveys, held by the partners: > samples and cores, and > line kilometres of seismic survey data, mostly for European seas, but also for the world oceans. However: No longer state-of-the-art standards and technologies Only metadata, no unified data access and no data products A lot of manual work Metadata not based on the ISO19115 metadata standard as recommended in INSPIRE Mapping services not based on OGC standards EU-funded projects SEISCAN and SEISCANEX ( ) have resulted in rescue of old seismic reflection data from paper records. > TIFF-format images, representing line kilometres of seismic survey data, were generated, and archived in databases at partners in the UK and France. The SEISCANEX infrastructure is still operational, however: SEISCANEX data centres are somewhat stand-alone Metadata not based on the ISO19115 metadata standard Many metadata are lacking position info Access to data and associated data formats can be improved

4 Geo-Seas present infrastructure

5 SeaDataNet - Pan-European infrastructure SeaDataNet is operating and further developing an efficient Pan-European distributed infrastructure for managing marine and ocean data by connecting: 40 National Oceanographic Data Centres (NODC s), national oceanographic focal points, and ocean satellite data centres, in Europe these Data Centres are mostly divisions of major national marine research institutes and based in 35 countries, surrounding the European seas SeaDataNet makes good progress in ensuring a comparable quality of data sets and making data sets easily accessible on-line through a unique portal, while the data sets are stored and managed at the Data Centres.

6 SeaDataNet from data inventory to analysis

7 Geo-Seas - objectives Provide user-access to harmonised marine geological and geophysical metadata and datasets in common, standard formats and ready for use, through a single data portal. Develop and provide new geological and geophysical data products and services to fulfil the diverse needs of end-user communities. BY Interconnecting the national marine geological and geophysical data centres of 17 European coastal countries and their data management systems, by adopting and adapting the SeaDataNet infrastructure approach, architecture and middleware components. Incorporating and upgrading the outputs of the EU-SeaSed and SEISCANEX projects. Sharing methodologies and standards, where possible and applicable, with GeoSciML developments and the One-Geology Europe and EMODNET Geology projects.

9 Geo-Seas SeaDataNet infrastructure Geo-Seas + Dedicated Geo-Seas portal Overarching SeaDataNet portal

10 Geo-Seas specific objectives To expand the SeaDataNet infrastructure by including the network of national geological surveys and geological research institutes. To publish and maintain a common catalogues of available data, data products and services, managed by these organisations. To harmonise quality standards, and exchange formats, to facilitate access to and delivery of these data to the various user communities, from research, government and industry To provide federated, marine geological and geophysical datasets, ready for use in the user communities using middleware to access and deliver the data via the internet.

11 Geo-Seas specific objectives (continued) To develop and to provide new dedicated geological and geophysical data products and services To formulate, determine, and facilitate arrangements for use of these data and data products To formulate, determine, and facilitate arrangements for consolidation and long-term exploitation of the Geo-Seas infrastructure To promote the infrastructure and its services to users and to encourage adoption of the protocols, standards and tools by other organisations.

12 Geo-Seas - Workplan Networking Activities WP1 (Month 01-42) WP2 (Month 01-42) WP3 (Month 13 30) WP4 (Month 01 08) WP5 (Month 09 42) WP6 (Month 01 42) Project management Infrastructure management and monitoring Capacity building and training Development of content standards, profiles, common transport and services protocols Population and maintenance of metadata directories Communication dissemination promotion data policy Transnational Access Activities WP7 (Month 24 42) Scientific services to give transnational Access (TA) to data, meta-data and products Joint Research Activities WP8 (Month 07-14) WP9 (Month 14 42) WP10 (Month 01 26) WP11 (Month 10 42) Development of software tools and services Installation and testing of components at data centres User consultation and development of standard data products Exploration and prototyping of more complex data products

15 Geo-Seas - Relationship with other projects SeaDataNet: Geo-Seas will adopt and adapt the SeaDataNet approach, architecture and middleware components and will extend the SeaDataNet infrastructure EMODNet geology: All of the Geo-Seas national survey organisations are members of this network, aiming at delivering interoperable GIS layers at 1:1 Million scale for number of geological aspects for pilot sea-areas One-Geology Europe: Nearly all of the Geo-Seas national survey organisations are members of this GEMS project, which works on the European contribution to the geological layer for GEOSS. GMES GeoSciML Geological Surveys are working on GML as a global standard for sharing geo scientific data EU-SeaSed: Geo-Seas will use the existing metadata from the project as a starting point, upgrading and transforming the information to be ISO and INSPIRE compliant and accessible through the new Geo-Seas data portal. SEISCANEX: The outputs from the project will be incorporated and upgraded within Geo- Seas.

16 Geo-Seas SeaDataNet possible impact WP4.1: Analyse and where required, adapt the SeaDataNet metadata standard (Common Data Index ISO19115 compliant) for indexing geological data WP4.2: Analyse and where required, adapt the SeaDataNet metadata standard (Common Data Index ISO19115 compliant) for indexing geophysical data Analysing whether the present CDI metadata format and XML schema require extensions for including relevant characteristics of geological and geophysical data. To stay close to the original CDI format and schema is a pre-condition, because that will restrict the number of modifications to the various software tools and applications, and will make merging the SeaDataNet and Geo-Seas metadata in a unified interface easier. Includes: WP4.3: Expand the SeaDataNet Common Vocabularies for marking up geological and geophysical metadata and data

17 Geo-Seas SeaDataNet possible impact WP4.4: Develop / adopt standards for formats for transport of geological data WP4.5: Develop / adopt standards for formats for transport of geophysical data Analysing whether the present SeaDataNet Data Transport Formats (ODV4 - NetCDF (CF)) can be applied or that this has to be expanded with other specific formats. Including: WP4.6: Adapt the SeaDataNet standard for quality flagging of geological and geophysical data

18 Geo-Seas SeaDataNet possible impact WP8.1: adapting the SeaDataNet tools and web services for metadata maintenance and aggregation to the central discovery service for Geo-Seas purposes WP8.2: Development of software tools and services, for interconnecting the Data Centres and for data search, selection, retrieval, formatting and checking Including expansion of services: WP8.3: Developing thumbnail quick view services for seismic reflection data WP10.2 Developing viewing services for seabed maps and geological logs WP11.1: Viewing services via internet for high resolution seismic reflection data and analyses WP11.2: Development and demonstration of a Digital Terrain Model and viewing service WP11.3: Exploration of the use and coupling of international, opensource software plug-ins, for modelling and visualisation
