The Norwegian marine datacenter (NMD) started serving operational research data from vessels operated by the Institute of Marine Research in the early 2000. Through the EU FP7 project MyOcean NMD has become the thematic assembly center for Arctic in-situ data. As a thematic assembly center NMD deliver in-situ data to the global assembly center and to the ocean forecasting centers where it’s used for assimilation or validation of model output. The data service has been expanded to include data from other data sources like the Coriolis data service. Real time quality control procedures have been defined in the MyOcean project and all data goes through these procedures and are flagged according to the SeaDataNet Quality flag scale. The Institute of Marine Research has also started work to operationalise other data types gathered on research vessels. These data types include different kinds of biological samples and chemical data that will become available to scientists in near real time
