COMPASS Posters and Reports

Data Flow to Data Management Systems (Gliders)

Within the T1 observational programme of COMPASS, glider missions in the summers of 2018 and 2019 have provided high-resolution datasets of water properties from the Malin shelf, spanning coastal Irish waters, coastal Scottish waters and Atlantic influenced waters near the shelf edge. Detailed in this report are the first two COMPASS glider missions, from August-October 2018 and August-September 2019.

Hindcasts of Hydrodynamic Conditions

The COMPASS hydrodynamic hindcasts consist of 2016-2020 daily fields of different physical parameters relevant to the distribution of marine species that can be directly obtained from the hydrodynamic models used under the COMPASS project. Detailed information about the selected parameters is provided in this report.

Report - Data Management Platform Requirements (Report 1)

In conjunction with other areas within the project the data management requirements for the COMPASS project have been defined at the start at the project. This ensures that as the project’s data management system is developed, both the needs of the data producers and the data users are catered for in the data management system. This report addresses the Platforms required for each task.

Report - Current Practices in Data Management (Report 2)

This document aims to report on the activity of the workshop (Feb 2018) and summarise the state-of-the-art in terms of data management at each of the partner institutions involved in COMPASS. The workshop was jointly coordinated by two of the European data coordinating groups for the marine: the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) and the European Global Ocean Observing System (EuroGOOS).

Report - COMPASS Data Processes (Report 3)

The focus of this report is to introduce the practices which the project partners have for processing Compass data as well as describe the factors which have influenced the design of same.

Report - COMPASS - Data Processes Review Workshop (Report 4)

This report summarises the Data Process Review workshop held for the COMPASS project at the National Oceanography Centre, Liverpool, UK February 2020. The workshop was part of the project’s task on data management to document, review and revise data management processes at partner organisations and to promote data management best practices through a data management quality management framework approach.

COMPASS Report - Technical Report on model interfacing technology

The modelling task in COMPASS is built around the pretext that useful models should operate seamlessly across national borders. This technical report is a detailed description/documentation of the two component models (Scottish & Irish) and of the methodology for interfacing them.

COMPASS Report - Full release of data layers and habitat maps via freely accessible web interface

One of the main objectives of the modelling work package in the COMPASS project was the delivery of environmental variables as habitat data layers, including physical environmental factors from hydrodynamic modelling for the period 2016-2020. This report describes the format and contents of the data layers produced under the framework of the COMPASS project. Section
