The scope of this challenge is to check the fitness for use of the current available marine datasets to follow up on the sea-level rise and sediment balance per stretch of coast of the BlackSea, over past 10, 50 and 100 years, or to indicate gaps in the current EU data collection framework.

This activity of the EU BlackSea checkpoint project (DG MARE contract n° EASME/EMFF/2014/1.3.1.3/LOT4/SI2.709436) has been executed during the 2015-2018 period of time. The methodology used is identical to all challenges.

  • Perform a literature survey to identify state of the art activities related to the use case and clarify the landscape of monitoring data covering the BlackSea,
  • Specify needs for production and realize the product,
  • Evaluate the adequacy of monitoring data, that is the availability and appropriateness.

  • Read our expert evaluation report to get feedback on the appropriateness of upstream data used in product realization,
  • And read integrated reports to find out all our assessment feedback on the project checkpoint
    • The Literature Survey: to discover all upstream data and possible uses
    • The first Data Adequacy Report to get feedback on the stress test on availability* of all referenced data sets
    • The second data Adequacy report for full feedback on availability and appropriateness of all used data sets, of all challenges.

The EMODnet Black Sea Checkpoint practical outputs are the results of the assessment exercise carried out by the so-called “challenges” specified by the call for tenders n° MARE/2014/09 aiming at determining how well the input data from the observing and monitoring systems existing at the sea basin scale fit the user needs to develop them.

This product and any resultant data produced is a consequence of these tests and provided on an “as is” basis. The information contained in the data products and in the descriptions (metadata) of the input data and of the data products making use of them is believed to be trustworthy. However, its completeness, consistency, accuracy, and usability cannot be guaranteed. Whilst every effort has been made to ensure its reliability within the limits of present knowledge, no responsibility can be accepted by those involved in its compilation or publication for any consequential loss or damage arising from its use.
