ready Marine Environmental Data and Information Network Data Portal

Abbreviation:MEDIN Data Portal

General Information
The Marine Environmental Data and Information Network (MEDIN) Data Portal is a service to allow users, through a single point of access, to find information on marine datasets held at the Data Archive Centres and at other public and private sector bodies. Marine data are expensive to collect and always unique in relation to time and geographical position. There are wide benefits to be gained from working together to share and properly manage the data. Marine data are held by many organisations in the UK and are collected for many different purposes: for the timing of tides; to determine the position of submerged obstacles; for marine conservation; to monitor and forecast weather and ocean states; to site marine structures; and for scientific research to understand marine processes.
