Marine and Hydrokinetics Open Data Project

The goal of this page is to be a hub for the wave, tidal, river, and offshore wind communities, providing access to free and open data. The focus will be on physical test data created at international laboratories. However, many other resources will be included. Links to resource data, standards, and best practice information will also be found here. The idea is that good work is being done around the globe and a central hub for data and information related to the marine hydrokinetic industry should be collected in one place. One of our target groups is early stage researchers who may not have access to their own test data and would benefit from existing data.
