Title: Stress testing the EU monitoring capacity for the Blue economy
Issue Date: 2017
Keywords: blue economy monitoring
Subject ClassificationSustainable development
Abstract: An EMODnet activity has started in 2013 to assess how well the European marine monitoring data meets the requirements of a sustainable blue economy. The activity is done by six European Sea Basin Checkpoints listed in the EMODnet central web page: Checkpoints should develop an assessment framework that considers “Use Cases” or “Challenges” to evaluate the fitness for use of input monitoring data sets. The Challenge products are related to both Blue Growth and the Marine Strategy Framework Directive objectives. The idea is that the quality of the Challenge products will inform stakeholders on how monitoring data set are “fit for use”. The Checkpoint assessment framework developed for the Mediterranean Sea is implemented through a “Service” composed of: 1) a GIS metadatabase with information about upstream data sources for Challenge products and availability indicators; 2) a Web GIS product display, encompassing links to the upstream data sources; 3) a tool to evaluate and display the statistics of assessment indicators. User requirements are recorded in the product catalogue (Data Product Specifications), which can be viewed for corrective actions. The same assessment framework is now being applied to the Atlantic and the Black Sea thus producing in the near future the first large basin scale assessment of input monitoring data set adequacy for applications.
