Data Access

EMODnet Chemistry Portal gives free and open access to measurement data, as delivered by the originators, for groups of chemical variables. Clicking on Chemicals by region you can visualise the Matrix indicating, per sea region and per chemicals group, how many measurement data have been gathered from tens of data providers in the EMODnet Chemistry network.

Chemicals by region

Measurement data are available through a Data Discovery and Access service that allows you to browse data sets in more detail, to narrow down your query and to download a selection of data sets. How does it work provides user-friendly instructions.

In addition, EMODnet Chemistry Portal gives free and open access to aggregated, standardized, validated data made available as regional and global data collections for eutrophication, acidity, contaminants and marine litter.

The webODV Data Explorer and Extractor facilitates to explore, subset, visualize, and extract data sets in multiple formats from regional data collections on eutrophication, also containing information on ocean acidification, and data collections on contanamination. The Video tutorial and the The user Manual dedicated to this new webODV online tool provides user-friendly instructions.
