Developing a network of research institutes and collaborators interested in time-series biodiversity data

Mark Costello (University of Auckland) and Amanda Bates are working on the initial steps in developing a global network of research institutes and collaborators interested in time-series biodiversity data. We are hoping that you would be willing to provide some information on long-term monitoring programmes/data series/observatories that are based at your institute.  Our aim is to identify temporal marine data sets and data holders in Europe, starting with the EUROMARINE community.

VLIZ invests EUR 250 000 in three new instruments for marine research

A measuring system for wind driven sand transport, a set-up for acidification experiments with algae and a multi-transducer parametrical echosounder are the three new research instruments that will be purchased by the Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) for marine research in Flanders and its surroundings. These three instruments were selected by the Scientific Committee through a call for proposals to invest in the marine research infrastructure of VLIZ 2015.
