IODE Cooperation with GOOS: Capacity Building and Data Management Aspects

Author(s) Greg Reed and Murray Brown
Summary The IODE marine data management capacity building program has, up till now, emphasized the use of existing, large-scale data archives as principal sources for constructing national data collections. Students have also been taught methods for adding archived and nearreal time satellite data to these archival source materials. Remote sensing data manipulations has, in fact, been rather easy due to the small family of formats used in the satellite community, and to the availability of robust software for data extraction and management. Operational (or real-time oceanographic data have not, however, been as easy to include in the program, due to the large number of formats involved, and the sporadic nature of the available data transmissions.
