- MINKE is an INFRAIA project that brings together 16 key European marine metrology research infrastructures to coordinate their use and development and propose an innovative framework of quality of oceanographic data for the different European actors in charge of monitoring and managing the EOVs (Essential Ocean Variables) and marine ecosystems.
Data quality is the key element in Ocean & Coastal Observing Systems to provide reliable measurements for developing evidence-based environmental policies. MINKE doesnt just address data quality but also focuses on all data quality dimensions, with a special emphasis on those related to meteorological factors. The project proposes a new vision in the design of marine monitoring networks, integrating two dimensions of data quality, namely accuracy and completeness, as the driving components of quality in data acquisition.
