OGS is part of the IOC's network of national oceanographic data centres and has designated responsibility for marine data. The oceanographic data base covers the fields of marine physics, chemical, biological, underway geophysics and general information on Italian oceanographic cruises and data sets.
NODC's mission is to operate a world class data center in support of Italian marine science by:
- providing data management support for Italian marine science projects maintaining and developing the national oceanographic database
- developing innovative marine data products and digital atlases collaborating in the international exchange and management of oceanographic data
- making high quality oceanographic data readily available to Italian research scientists in academia, government and industry
