Abstract
    Through the Marine Science and Technology Programme (MAST-III) the European Commission has conducted marine data management activities: To improve coordination, cooperation and exchange of information amongst European scientists; To help the effectiveness of national and international Programmes through better use of research facilities and transfer of expertise and knowledge. These objectives are fully supported by all countries within the European Union through the framework programme of Community Research. To improve coordination, cooperation and the exchange as well as accessibility of information amongst European scientists on the field of the Sedimentology, within the framework of MAST-III Supporting Initiatives (Concerted Actions), two proposals, EUMARSIN and EUROCORE, have been awarded and launched by the end of 1998 : EUROCORE A searchable Internet (meta) database of seabed samples from the ocean basins held at European Institutions, Universities and Marine Stations EUMARSIN European Marine Sediment Information Network on the Internet, concerning marine sediment meta-databases of the Geological Surveys of the EU-countries and Norway. Between these 2 projects coordination and tuning has been set on and they are operating under the Unified Name "EU-SEASED" (European Sea Sediments). The progress as well as results of both projects (meta-databases) are accessible by means of the Internet, using the following unified address: http://www.eu-seased.net/
