BODC data products
BODC has an international reputation for managing data for large-scale scientific projects covering many disciplines and involving a wide range of data types.
Marine data products
The aim of the ARABESQUE project was to study the upper ocean microbial biogeochemistry in the Arabian Sea.
Autosub Science Missions
The aim of the Autosub Science Missions was to demonstrate the usefulness of Autosub. Six Science Missions were designed to collect data which could not be obtained by research ships.
BOFS North Atlantic Data Set
The Biogeochemical Ocean Flux Study's aim was to study the role of the oceans in the global cycling of carbon.
Bristol Channel Project
The Bristol Channel Project was a study of the British Channel and Severn Estuary.
DISCO was an integrated, multidisciplinary Lagrangian study of the routes, rates and controls on the biogeochemical cycling of dimethyl sulphide (DMS) within a bloom of the coccolithophorid alga, Emiliania huxleyi.
GEBCO Digital Atlas
The GEBCO Digital Atlas (GDA) is a reference source for the bathymetry of the world's oceans.
Inlet Dynamics Initiative: Algarve (INDIA)
The aims of the INDIA project were to gain a better understanding of the interactions between tides, waves, currents and sediment processes at work in the European coastal zone and to be able to predict change.
Looks at land-sea interactions in the coastal zone and the major exchanges (physical, chemical and biological) between rivers and estuaries and the atmosphere.
Studies the processes happening in the slope region where the continental shelf and oceanic systems interact.
The main objective of MAIA was to develop an inexpensive, reliable system based on coastal sea level data, for monitoring the inflow of Atlantic water to the Nordic Seas.
The UK Tide Gauge Network, part of the National Tide and Sea Level Facility (NTSLF), was set up to obtain high quality tidal information and to provide warning of possible flooding of coastal areas around the British Isles.
North Sea Project
The North Sea Project aimed to enhance scientists’ ability to predict the impact of man’s activities on the North Sea through the development computer based models.
OMEX I concentrated on studying the physical, chemical and biological processes happening along the northwest European shelf break.
OMEX II concentrated on studying the physical, chemical and biological processes at the Iberian continental margin.
PRIME was a NERC funded thematic project to study the role of plankton in oceanic biogeochemical fluxes.
The PROVESS project was based on the integration of experimental, theoretical and modelling studies with the aim of improving understanding and quantification of vertical exchange processes in the water column.
UK Digital Marine Atlas
UKDMAP has been developed by BODC as a wide-ranging reference source for information on the coasts and seas around the UK.
