Description
Metadatabase for all sea-floor sediment samples and cores collected by the European Geological Surveys. This database contains only data on European seas, in areas on the continental shelf <200m water depth, but includes EGS data in deeper waters. more

The meta-database consists of sedimentological, bathymetric and analytical data, e.g. geochemical analyses, which will enable first approach studies for a wide variety of users. Users are able to access information concerning the nature and quality of seabed sediments by identifying the sources where the required data are stored. The information was based on the marine sediment meta-data banks of the Geological Surveys of the EU countries and Norway, which intitial estimates considered to represent about 140,000 sample points. The European Marine Sediment Information Network (EUMARSIN) project was established in November 1998 with the support of the European Commission Marine Science and Technology (MAST) programme of the fourth framework programme. During the project, the 16 partner organisations developed a public-domain meta-database network, designed to give wide access to information already obtained from their work in the European Seas, but which had not been fully integrated into a single European system.
