1999 Projects:
Information management and archiving

A number of projects at MBARI are designed to make maximum use of data and samples collected for both internal and external researchers. Two theoretical studies will examine which sampling strategies optimize estimation of oceanographic properties of interest. The results of these studies will help determine how, when, and where data needs to be acquired and archived. In 1999 improvements are also planned in the Video Information Management System (VIMS) for acquiring and archiving video images from the ROVs. A new project will begin to develop a web-based interface for visualizing three- dimensional data sets collected by the ROVs. We expect to provide easier access in 1999 to CTD, moorings, and molecular data, and to MBARI samples. We will continue efforts to properly document major MBARI engineering projects, such as Tiburon, to facilitate maintenance and technology transfer efforts.
