DISC Dataset Information of the Solent Catalogue: A metadatabase
The purpose of Disc is to help the Solent’s coastal community to identify material of interest and signpost them to it; it is a metadatabase, the Forum does not hold the actual data. We welcome details of reports (hard copy and electronic), proceedings, photo libraries, surveys, books, code of practices, etc. All material needs to relate to coastal issues, but it need not be specific to the Solent where it covers the coast generally, for example Defra’s Safeguarding our Seas report.
Use the search box on the right to find items in database, or click on a pre-defined keyword search term. Alternatively:

How can you help develop the database?
Currently Solent Disc is in its infancy. In order for it to develop we need input from data holders in the Solent's coastal community. Please use the form below to fill in details of each document that you would like to be recorded in Solent Disc. Please use a separate form for each document. There are two parts to the form, the data centre details and the record details.
