Products, services, technical developments and infrastructures: these were the key words of the International Conference on Marina Data and Information Systems (IMDIS) that took place online from 12 to 14 April 2021.
On 12 April, The National Institute of Oceanography and Applied Geophysics (OGS) presented EMODnet Chemistry: progresses and challenges along the path to the European marine litter data management.
The EMODnet Chemistry experience in European marine litter data management led to improve the data quality procedures. Great efforts have been made to improve the data management tools provided for users. These efforts are finalized to streamline the data flow from submission to publication and to save resources to be invested in the new marine litter datatypes management.
