New EuroGOOS data policy released in the Ocean Best Practices System

The new EuroGOOS data policy is now available on OBPS. This policy is the European implementation of the IOC Data Policy and Terms of Use adopted in 2023. It requires its members’ commitment to share core ocean data openly according to the FAIR principles and clear licences. By core in situ ocean data we mean, at least, the physical and biogeochemical Essential Ocean Variables (EOVs) which are necessary for the Copernicus Marine Service and the EuroGOOS Regional Operational Oceanographic Systems (ROOS), including coastal services, as well as the services delivered by the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet).
