Information dissemination

Core mooring data
Project Manager: Brian Schlining
Lead Scientist: Dave Caress

This MDUC (mooring data users committee) project provides for the institutional support of core data from MBARI moorings. Subsets of mooring data (surface CTD, T-string, GPS, ADCP, meteorological, and pCO2 data) have been designated as core data streams, which means that support for the collection, processing, and archiving of the data is provided on an institutional basis rather than through individual projects or divisional budgets.

The primary elements of this project are:

  • Maintenance and minor development of software used for processing and archiving of mooring data.

  • Data processing and validation by Fred Bahr of the Naval Postgraduate School.
  • Data archiving and dissemination through the mooring data-store.
  • Data validation by a designated monitor.


For 2003, we propose improvements to the data access interface. These improvements include:

  • Producing standard daily and hourly averaged data.

  • Providing quick-look plots for archived data sets.

  • Providing a facility for querying the data, allowing easy access to relevant data sets.
