Description:

The Cefas Data Hub holds a wide variety of both marine and freshwater data.  Data themes include biological (fisheries, benthic invertebrates, plankton etc.), physical (water temperature, wave direction, water depth etc.), chemical (nutrients, toxins, radiochemistry etc) and socio-economic (dredge disposal sites, economic models, recreational angling surveys etc).  Data formats are varied and include CSV’s, Shapefiles, Sound recordings, PDFs, JPEG images, model outputs and gene sequences.  Timescales of the data range from historic (1880) to the present (with semi-live feeds to remote sensing platforms).  The geographic extents of data mainly concentrate on UK waters but also include global areas such as the Southern Indian Ocean, Caribbean and the Arctic.

The openscience website is a R shiny web applications for data visualisation and data sharing linked to the Cefas Data Hub database. During the programme JERICO-NEXT, 2 R Shiny application have been created: 1. the Benthic Non Native Species Tool(NON-NATIVE) showing occurrence records for non-native species sampled in benthic grabs between 1969 and 2016. 2. PHYTO-OPS showing physical and biogeochemical data from the FerryBox coupled with phytoplankton functional types from flow cytometry analysis and taxonomic   groups from pigment analysis (HPLC) during surveys on the RV Cefas Endeavour.
