Marine Benthic Data Dissemination
Data collected during JNCC’s offshore surveys are collated and imported into JNCC’s Marine Recorder database system. Data are made available through the six-monthly snapshot collated by JNCC from both its internal holdings and those submitted by the other Marine Recorder contributors.
MEDIN & OBIS
As part of JNCC’s aims of persistence and open use of public data, JNCC provides its offshore survey data to MEDIN for archival and discovery purposes.
Biological data are then distributed further to the international Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) through MEDIN’s own links with the international system.
