Progress Report on POGO (Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans) Data Sharing Activity

Author(s) S. Sathyandrenath, R. Weller, and S. Lucas
Summary The spirit of this [data sharing project] was to jump in and try it out as a learning experience for a year following the POGO meeting in La Jolla. We chose to try DODS (Distributed Ocean Data Server) software, having heard about it and seen it demonstrated. It also had the advantages of being freely available and able to run on several programs. We had planned to use an older Silicon Graphics (SGI) work station. However, discussions with folks at UCAR (University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colorado) who are supporting DODS suggested that there are difficulties with SGI installations. So we chose instead to get a Pentium PC, install LINUX, and bring it online as a DODS server.
