​Project objectives:

Baltic Data Flows seeks to enhance the sharing and harmonisation of data on marine environment originating from existing sea monitoring programmes, and to move towards service-based data sharing.

ICES role:

ICES is leading and involved in several work packages, and highlights include:

  • Upgrading ICES Oceanographic data portal (to conform to internationally recognised vocabularies and state of the art standards, with interoperability and data exchange with other national and international systems in mind)
  • Working with Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) and the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE) to develop an API-based data harvesting system for 3 dataflows: biological community, contaminants, and eutrophication (oceanographic)
  • Making regional sea assessment data products FAIR
  • Further development of data processing and software used in hazardous substances assessment (see OSPAR example)

The project co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Union​.
