You can provide ocean data to us; we then provide you data management services:
- data formating
- real-time quality control
- data distribution to individual users, operational oceanography community such as GTS or Copernicus
- data discovery and data access services
Submit XBT and CTD data from a research vessel or a ship of opportunity
2 email addresses to be used
- email@example.com (COriolis DAta Centre) is the address to be used to exchange information, to ask questions or to report problems to the Coriolis data centre
- firstname.lastname@example.org is the address that must be used to send data to the Coriolis
Email “Subject “ must mention at least SHIP NAME and CALL SIGN
- Example : “CTD data from Meteor DBBH”
- XBT: it is recommended to send the .edf Sippican format. Please check that the probe-type (ie T-5) and the fall rate equations are correct regarding the configuration of the acquisition system. Other formats (ie NetCDF Devil format) can be taken into account after prior exchange (email@example.com) with the Coriolis Data Centre.
- CTD: the .cnv (Seabird format) is the recommended format. Other format can eventually be taken into account after agreement from the Coriolis data centre
Full resolution or decimated data?
- It is recommended to transmit the full resolution data but PIs can consider the transmission of decimated data (1 measure every bar)
Which parameters ?
- At least Temperature and Salinity should be transmitted but other parameters can be transmitted after agreement with the data centre.
- Data received within 30 days after data collection will be distributed on the GTS unless the PI asks us not to do it.
- The data centre will acknowledge the reception of the data.
