Table of Contents
    The team will present the results at the halfway stage of their quest to assess how good the marine data in the North Sea are.

    The assessment is made partly by a literature review and partly through a set of challenges. There are seven Challenges: Wind Farm Siting (CH1), Marine Protected Areas (CH2), Oil spill Platform Leaks (CH3), Climate and Coastal Protection (CH4), Fisheries (CH5), Marine Environment (CH6) and Rivers (CH7). The assessment will help identify gaps and prioritize the needs in order to optimize the system throughout the value chain (i.e. data collection, in situ and satellite data assembling, data management and networking, modelling and forecasting, geo-infrastructure) and release  recommendations for future developments to better meet the application requirements

    The first data adequacy report  will be evaluated by a Panel of experts
