Core mooring data

Lead Scientist: Dave Caress

This MDUC (MBARI 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 2004, this project will continue to provide support for the core mooring data. In addition, we will integrate historical core mooring data into the Shore-side Data System (SSDS)
