The Marine Analyst Team would like to thank the "Campus Mondial de la mer" which organised the Ocean Hackathon and the jury members in Brest who put the Marine Analyst on top of the scene of the 2020 edition.

We will take part to the OCEAN HACKATHON in Brest (10-11 Oct. 2020)
Our challenge: achieve portability and demonstrate the reproducibility of research work in the field of maritime spatial planning, applied to the bay of Seine, for other maritime regions in Europe. The challenge will be based on WEkEO's cloud services (EU Copernicus DIAS) and the "Marine Analyst" portal (first runner-up of the 2019 Copernicus Oceanhack organised by EUMETSAT, CMEMS and the Estonian Weather Service).

Context and objective of the challenge: to be operational, Maritime spatial planning (MSP) requires to integrate data from various sources (biology, physics, human activities ...), heterogeneous in their spatial and temporal coverage and in their typologies (raster, points, polygons). In order to give users and managers of these spaces the most complete information possible to ensure reasoned planning of uses, a preliminary work implemented in the bay of Seine as part of an end-of-study internship showed that it was possible to make this approach objective by relying on existing marine data dissemination portals (https : //github.com/ldbk/SeineMSP under development). Our team intends to resume this work and make it operational for all European waters. By integrating it into a maritime data web portal (Marine Analyst - http://marine-analyst.eu), users will be able to reproduce the analysis and generate the indicators developed (geospatial characterization of environmental zones) for the geographic areas of their choice. To achieve this, we will use both the Marine Analyst portal for editing and publishing executable notebooks (R notebooks), as well as the WEkEO's cloud processing service.

Data providers: OBIS, Copernicus / Eumetsat, EMODnet, GBIF, Ifremer, ICES etc. The team: Laurent Dubroca (marine ecology research manager at Ifremer), Pascal Derycke (Marine Analyst - Le village virtual), Thibault Cariou (Ifremer, Jehanne Rivet (Ifremer), Claudia Schlagenhauf (linguist).

Technical resources: WEkEO (DIAS), Marine Analyst (Marine data hub)
