Do I need to register ?

Yes, the registration is mandatory: users must register once in order to get a personal login-password. Please follow this link to register:

https://www.seadatanet.org/Data-Access/User-registration

and click on "Register as SeaDataNet user".

The registration facilitates the access decision process:

  • each user gets a SeaDataNet role;
  • while each CDI record has a “Data access restriction” label;
  • The combination of role and access label determines ‘Access OK’, ‘Access to be discussed‘ or ‘Access denied’ to the data.
