Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, Ministry of the Environment, Sweden

Data Center Description
The laboratory operates as an Designated National Agency (DNA) for
data management within the International Oceanographic Data and
Information Exchange (IODE) system. A main task is to collect, quality
control, archive and process hydrographical and hydrochemical
data. The archive consists of data collected by Swedish institutes as
well as data from the other Baltic countries. Since 1978, when the
Swedish Monitoring Programme (PMK) started, also biological data are
included in the archive. The laboratory co-operates with the other
major marine data collecting institutes, that is, the Swedish
Environmental Protection Board (biological data), the National Board
of Fisheries (fisheries research) and the Oceanographic Institute at
the University of Gothenburg (physical and chemical data). Data and/or
products can, on mutual agreement, be available on magnetic tape,
formatted printouts, data summaries and inventories, statistical
analyses and graphical presentations.
