What do we do? - Science


Data curation, archiving and distribution is organised under work package 15: Data Management (WP15 leader Reiner Schlitzer) in cooperation with the World Data Center for Marine Environmental Sciences (WDC-MARE). EPOCA has developed a data policy for data reporting and publishing, that all members have agreed to follow (restricted, data policy summary). Data are archived in the information system Pangaea. EPOCA contact with WDC-MARE is Hannes Grobe (Hannes.Grobe (at)


The following dynamic links to PANGAEA always provide the most recent version of metadata lists and the EPOCA data content:

  • Parameters - list of parameters defined as a „standard“ for EPOCA.
  • References - list of publications related to EPOCA with links to data and paper.
