Transnational Access Services 

WP7 deals with Scientific services to provide access to data, meta-data and products.


The Geo-Seas infrastructure consists of a network of interconnected data centres and the central portal at 27 locations in Europe, divided over 17 countries. The data centres together must be considered as one infrastructure, because via one central Geo-Seas portal and underlying distributed connections the data centres can be queried and their metadata, data and data products retrieved by end-users. The following table gives the names and countries of each of the Geo-Seas infrastructure nodes.
