organisation profile

The National Oceanographic Data Committee (NODC) of the Netherlands is the national platform for exchange of oceanographic and marine data and information, and for advisory services in the field of ocean and marine data management.

The NL-NODC consists of 8 organisations in The Netherlands, active in marine and oceanographic monitoring and data collection. Collecting these data is an expensive operation. Cooperation offers opportunities to make the data available -better and easier- to a growing group of users. To achieve this the availability of data of known quality should be secured for the future. This is a matter of national interest and beyond individual institute interests.

The goals of NODC are:

  • to enhance the availability of high quality oceanographic data for a wide group of users now and in the future,
  • to decrease the thresholds for making oceanographic data available between NODC participants.


The following organisations are partners in the NL-NODC

- Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management - Rijkswaterstaat - Water Service (RWS-WD)
