Cruise Inventory > Western Mediterranean

Mediterranean National data sets are available at the National Oceanographic Data Centres & Designated National Agencies for International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IOC/IODE/NODC-DNA).

The regional data management is at the core of the project and during the project implementation, those experienced centres with good communicacion links will offer facilities for quality checking the regional data in close collaboration with the quality assurance experts of the project.

  • The National Data Sets from Spain, Morocco and Algeria are being assembled at the Western Mediterranean Qualification Center. Choosing France you will follow the link to see also French cruise inventory.



  • The global MEDAR/MEDATLAS-II cruise inventory is developed by the All Russian Oceanografic Data Center - World Data Center-B.
