European Directory of the Ocean-observing System (EDIOS)

The objective of the EDIOS project was to construct and implement a directory of ocean observation metadata. This database provides a new tool for searching for information on oceanographic measurements made repeatedly, regularly and routinely in European waters.

Although the initial EDIOS project has been completed, the metadatabase and web site will continue to be maintained and updated. This will be carried out by BODC and MARIS, Netherlands, on behalf of the European Global Ocean Observing System (EuroGOOS).

Along with other marine databases, the EDIOS metadatabase will be used and developed further by the EU SeaDataNet (2006 - 2011) project.
