- Your guide to Oceanographic and Marine Data & Information in Europe

Pan-European network for ocean & marine data and information management

SEA-SEARCH (2002 - 2005) was an EU funded project involving a network of 33 national oceanographic data centres and marine information services from 30 coastal states. Each SEA-SEARCH partner was specialised in managing and distributing oceanographic and marine data.
The project aimed to resolve problems of missing standards, lack of collaboration, limited data access and incompatibility.

The SEA-SEARCH project ended in 2005, followed by SeaDataNet I (2006-2011) and SeaDataNet II (2011-2015).

For further details, please refer to the presentation prepared by Schaap (MARIS), the coordinator.
