Working group to establish data standards and practices for taxon-resolved phytoplankton observations - PIs: Heidi Sosik (WHOI), Christopher Proctor (NASA GSFC/SSAI), Aimee Neeley (NASA GSFC/SSAI), Ivona Cetinić (NASA GSFC/USRA)
Objective: In an effort to facilitate community-wide access to phytoplankton data products that support critical satellite algorithm development and validation, this working group will convene relevant expertise (e.g., phytoplankton ecology and taxonomy, data systems, informatics, etc.) to develop a set of standards and best practices for phytoplankton taxonomy data.
