The EU-Seased database and website has come forward from the EU-funded projects EUROSEISMICS. It provides a searchable catalogue of over 2.5 million line kilometres of marine seismic and sonar survey data held at European institutions. Searches can be made using an interface combining geographic and text fields searching, which allows searches on a wide range of parameters. The results of your search lists only metadata; access to actual data and any related datasets is for negotiation between the user and the repository where the data is stored. Contact information for each data holder/owner is provided and, where possible, the terms of data availability is given. The website is managed by MARIS in a service contract for Euro Geo Surveys.
