Description
MIDAS stands for Marine Information and Data Acquisition System. This suite of programs was developed at Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) to plan the cruises of the RV Zeeleeuw, to register the research activities during these cruises and to capture navigational, metereological and oceanographic parameters while underway. more

VLIZ supports scientists and administrations by collecting, checking, integrating and re-distributing operational data. Data measurements can take place with VLIZ equipment or equipment from third parties. In the easiest case, instruments are used with the software that has been supplied by the deliverer. In other cases, applications will be developed to automate the whole. Besides this, databases and web applications will be developed to compile and to re-distribute the data. If relevant, the data will also be delivered to international organisations.
  • Underway data Zeeleeuw: these are data that are generated through the continuous measure system on board of the Zeeleeuw. A total of 15 parameters come from 6 different instruments.
  • Cruise data Zeeleeuw: these are the data that are imported during a cruise and come from scientists and Zeeleeuw crew.
  • Casts and deployments: data that are collected with the CTD’s, LISST and ADCP. These instruments are used for depth profiles (casts) or to last into the water for a longer period.
