Core mooring data - MBARI Data Users Committee

Project Manager: Brian Schlining 
Lead Scientist: Dave Caress

This MDUC project provides for the institutional support of core data from MBARI moorings. A subset of mooring data (surface CTD, T-string, meteorological, GPS, ADCP and p CO2 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 through a Science data champion.

For 2005, this project will continue to provide support for the core mooring data. In addition, we propose to investigate integration of historical core mooring data into the Shore-side Data System (SSDS).
