We describe two of the nodes of the European Multi-disciplinary Seafloor and water-column Observatory (EMSO) which are closely connected to the two sites of the KM3NeT infrastructure: EMSO-Antares in the West Ligurian sea and the EMSO Western Ionian Sea Node. We present the general characteristics and objectives of both nodes and illustrate their capabilities with some illustrative results.
