Data are everywhere. Facts or information utilized to calculate, analyze, or plan something - is data. And as research scientists, data forms the very pith of what we do. Data tells the story - we synthesize, process, and write about those stories and publish them in peer-reviewed journals, converse with colleagues, and present the information to the research community and public.

This program contains experimental platforms and sensors, data will be released publicly only once the data quality can be verified. If public release is deemed appropriate, and is approved by each partner in a project, final, post-processed data will be shared via the NOAA-NCEI National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC) for oceanographic data. Public release and access will accordingly be arranged through NCEI’s Geoportal.
Prior to free public release, experimental data may be shared on a case-by-case basis for research and QA/QC purposes. Data access can be requested by clicking on the Request Data link above. Publication of these data and associated results will also be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Images and text associated with this cruise report may be used for presentations or white papers with permission from the managing PI.
