SOOSmap is a collaboration between SOOS and the European Marine Observations and Data Network (EMODnet) Physics. It serves up curated and standardised observation data from oceanographic and Antarctic research programs from many nations and scientific disciplines. SOOSmap is built around individual observing platforms or sampling events (e.g. an Argo float or plankton trawl).
SOOSmap draws on the extensive data holdings of Copernicus and EMODnet, which were collated for European seas but which cover global oceans. Additionally, SOOS is bringing in key datasets of particular value to the Southern Ocean, including krill, plankton, and sea ice observations.
