OASIS: Ocean Acquisition System for Interdisciplinary Science

MBARI's biological oceanography group produces a large volume of data from its mooring and cruise operations. It is our intent to share this data as freely as possible with the general oceanographic community so as to maximize its utility and exposure. However, we place the following restrictions on the use of this data: MBARI provides these data "as is", with no warranty, express or implied, of the data quality or consistency. Data are provided without support and without obligation on the part of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute to assist in its use, correction, modification, or enhancement.

For use in publication, authors should obtain written permission from MBARI's Director of Information and Technology Dissemination Judith Connor. You should acknowledge MBARI as the data source in those publications and provide reprints to the MBARI library. The real time data, including all of the data collected on current mooring deployments (up to 16 months), has NOT been quality controlled and should be used with caution. Questions regarding the core mooring data should be sent to Mike McCann.
