Here you are consulting the ebegi viewer, developed by AZTI where you can explore and download the metadata
of the multidisciplinary and multiplatform observational efforts at the core of ebegi project.
This viewer is a first step towards identifying integration needs and opportunities for the building of an
optimized observatory for the integrated observation of south-east Bay of Biscay coastal area.

Context. During the last decades and thanks to the participation in European, national and regional projects,
AZTI (Marine Research Institute located in the Basque Country, SE Bay of Biscay)
has been playing a key role in the Observation of the Bay of Biscay and the coastal zone of the Basque Country.
Observational efforts, campaigns and initiatives (e.g. Coastal Operational Oceanography System EuskOOS,
Climate Change Observatory, Network for the Ecological Quality Assessment of the Transitional and Coastal Waters,
Multidisciplinary Ecosystem Campaigns…) currently respond to questions of different disciplines and sectors.
ebegi aims to capitalize these efforts by ensuring better communication and coordination between the different components
of the ocean observation in the area for the development of a common scientific and technological strategy towards the
constitution of an optimized observatory. In addition, ebegi aims at identifying technological and methodological innovations
and creating opportunities for their implementation in this observation system.
