MeDir-OP is a directory of key Mediterranean institutions, centres and agencies in the Mediterranean that deal with the monitoring of the marine environment or underpin research for operational oceanography. It includes information on potential users of marine data, on key public administration/authorities responsible for marine affairs, and on the relevance of the maritime sector in the economic activities of Mediterranean countries.

MeDir-OP gives also information on routine marine monitoring activities with details on observing platforms. MeDir-OP is an initiative promoted by the MAMA/MedGOOS project funded under the Vth RTD Framework Programme of the EU. >> more information
