The focus of coastMap lies in campaign data, model analyses and thematic biogeochemistry maps. more
COSYNA is special in that a great deal of data is continuously collected from automated measurement systems and made available in real-time. more
Using coastDat data, past and future development of meteorological-marine environmental conditions can be calculated and evaluated over decades. more
The Institute of Coastal Research provides model and observation data on coastal regions, mainly from the German Bight to the North Atlantic. This data comprises various physical, chemical and biological measurements and high-resolution model data, including, for example, temperature, salinity, waves, water levels, currents, wind, nutrients, pollutants, pH, chlorophyll and algae. The data has been collected and calculated in various manners. For ease of use, they were summarized below in three different portals.
coastDat – long-term changes in the marine environmental conditions
COSYNA – synoptic description of the present marine environmental conditions
CoastMap – geodata and information products
The portals allow access to data from the Institute of Coastal Research free of charge (in accordance with CC-BY4.0). Extensive data sets, time series, maps and statistics can be searched, visualised and downloaded in different ways. Data access and the metadata meet international standards, such as INSPIRE, ISO 19115, OPeNDAP, SOS.
