The preparation of a comprehensive directory of marine data sets is seen as an essential first step to developing a European perspective to the management and utilisation of marine environmental data. EDMED (European Directory of Marine Environmental Data) has therefore been developed to provide users of marine data with the means of identifying sources of data and to provide essential background information against which appropriate strategies might be developed for managing and exploiting marine data, both on a European scale and at national level. Over 1500 data set descriptions have been assembled, from 367 data holding centres throughout the EU. The present report reviews the work undertaken to compile these entries. Full listings of the completed data set and data holding centre descriptions are available separately in a series of annexes. An index to the data sets and data holding centres is provided in appendices within the main report.
