Wellcome to NODC of Ukraine official web site!
The Designed National Agency (DNA) of Ukraine was established by IODE Data Centre on the basis
of the Department of Marine Information Systems and Technologies (MIST) in the Marine Hydrophysical Institute (MHI)
of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (NASU) in 1993.
In 2006 the Department of Marine Environmental and Information Technologies (MEIT) was organized in the MHI
in accordance to both the new priorities in scientific research and optimization of the MHI 's structure. MEIT
is composed by employees that previously had worked at the Department of Marine Information Systems and Technologies (MIST).
In 2008 Ukraine decided to shift to the distributed model of the NODC. From now on in Ukraine in addition to the NODC (DNA) based at
the MHI Department of Marine Environmental and Information Technologies there will be one more NODC (DNA) based at the
Laboratory of the Marine Information Systems (LaMIS) of the Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas (IBSS).
Both institutions are members of the Oceanological Centre of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
