The EAMNet project was successfully completed in July 2013 after three and a half years.  Although the project is no longer active this website remains in place as a resource for Earth Observation tools and lesson material developed during the project as well as project information and newsletters.  The EAMNet project was coordinated by Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML).  For further information on PML's Remote Sensing Group please visit http://rsg.pml.ac.uk/

EAMNet aims to construct a network linking Earth Observation (EO) information providers, user networks and centres of excellence in Europe and Africa in the area of coastal and marine observations towards sustainable development in Africa.

The network will undertake capacity building and maintenance and build upon existing infrastructure and expertise in Africa. The overall aim is to improve the exploitation of EO data for coastal and oceanic monitoring towards an Africa-wide observation system (GOOS-Africa).

It will provide an interface between European GMES-related core and downstream services and R&D projects (notably MyOcean) and African initiatives (e.g. AMESD) with the emerging GMES-Africa initiative. It will also provide further links with GEO and provide access to a Data Portal, please see accompanying image to right.

EAMNet is coordinated by Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) with 9 other partners in Africa and Europe.
