Seascape Consultants Ltd was established in 2010 to provide solutions and high-level advice to the marine sector, with expertise in the fields of seafloor geological processes, marine biodiversity, ecosystems and habitat mapping, marine data, governance and legislative advice. Seascape Consultants specialise in marine research programme coordination, and currently coordinate the international Global Ocean Biodiversity Initiative (GOBI; www.gobi.org), the FP7 MIDAS project (www.eu-midas.net), and provides the Secretariat for the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet). In AltantOS, Seascape will apply its expertise to strengthen the dissemination and exploitation of data and information from observatories and contribute to streamline the interactions between AtlantOS, the main observing communities and their multiple stakeholders and users (WP10 Task 10.2 and 10.3). It will also contribute to monitor data flows as part of AtlantOS’ system monitor and evaluation activities (WP9 Task 9.1), contribute to ensure smooth integration of data streams into existing systems such as EMODnet (WP7 Task 7.2) while maintaining open communication between AtlantOS and ongoing European marine data efforts under Marine Knowledge 2020. As part of its responsibilities, Seascape will also facilitate the activities of the AtlantOS Engagement Board (WP11) in close collaboration with the Project Coordinator.
