IOCCP Position Paper on Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Data Management

FYI - see link to IOCCP SSG position paper below!

-------- Forwarded Message --------

Dear All,

The IOCCP Scientific Steering Group would like to announce its position with regards to the Global Ocean Biogeochemistry Data Management.

pdfThe Position Paper highlights the vulnerability of the current global ocean carbon and biogeochemistry data management system that relies too heavily on individual data managers and institutions. The paper further suggests establishing a system of Global Data Assembly Centers for ocean biogeochemistry leading to more uniform and cost-effective data management strategies, and allowing to facilitate a more resilient system for future development of the data synthesis and assessment products.
