MIDAS stands for Marine Information and Data Acquisition System. This suite of programs is developed at Flanders Marine Institute (VLIZ) to plan the cruises of the RV Simon Stevin, to register the research activities during these cruises and to capture navigational, metereological and oceanographic parameters while underway.
All data is organized in cruises and trips. Either use the schedule, the chronological list of cruises or the cruises ordered by campaigns to select a specific cruise and trip.
For each performed trip a link to the underway data, the stations, research activities and a map of the track is available.
