Data and Visualisation

The Institute of Coastal Research generates various data products as part of its research. Here you can query and download campaign data collected during ship or land based sampling campaigns. Furthermore, you can analyse and download important model results for the North Sea in high spatial and temporal resolutions that have been processed and are provided through a new and innovative array database format. The Map Gallery offers a compilation of various thematic maps.
