Environmental Marine Information System

Acronym: EMIS

Description

The Marine Geoportal EMIS relies on biological and physical variables generated from both hydrodynamic models and satellite remote sensing.

A number of these variables and advanced products are available as raster datasets to the scientific and environmental managerial community through various tools (GIS Viewer, EMIS-R, Marine Analyst, Maps) which enable the user to conduct regional assessments. The geographical extent is 70N - 10S and 30W - 42E and the available spatial resolution are 4 and 2km.

To access the datasets a http url is provided (http://emis.jrc.ec.europa.eu/satellite/).

Each folder includes time series of datasets with IDENTIFIER CODED formed as follow:

DATASET IDENTIFIER CODE
