The Marine Data Viewer uses information from in-situ and satellite observations as well as model products to provide the user with the possibility to observe the marine environment. The user interface of the map viewer is designed for (citizen) scientists and allows for interaction with large data collections by geographical area and using sliders for date, time and depth.

The in-situ values are provided by SeaDataNet and Euro-Argo and are co-located with product layers from Copernicus Marine, based upon modelling and satellite data.

This viewer has been developed within the EU EOSC Future project, where ENVRI-FAIR partners are involved in WP6 for developing the dashboard of the state of the environment. This dashboard should provide easy means to users to determine the state and follow trends of our Earth system for a selected number of parameters. The dashboard concerns the Earth components Atmosphere, Ocean, and Biodiversity.

As part of the ocean domain of the dashboard, this marine data viewer is established. The data that is visible on the viewer is also used to generate aggregated values for feeding the ocean trend indicators as planned for the dashboard.

The demo dashboard is visible at:
