The GEOTRACES Scientific Steering Committee has established an GEOTRACES International Data Assembly Centre at the British Oceanographic Data Centre (Liverpool, United Kingdom). Additional information concerning the protocols for submission of GEOTRACES data has been posted on their web site (click on the link above or contact firstname.lastname@example.org).
On February 2014, four years after the launch of the GEOTRACES Programme, the first GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product was released. It is freely available to download from here.
GEOTRACES International Data Management Committee
The first step towards establishing a GEOTRACES International Data Management Centre was taken by a group of experts who developed a proposal for data management in GEOTRACES. Subsequently, GEOTRACES established a standing committee on Data Management, co-chaired by Drs. Andy Bowie of the University of Tasmania and Alessandro Tagliabue of the University of Liverpool. That committee has developed more specific recommendations for data management which have been implemented by the GEOTRACES International Data Management Centre. Members of the Data Management Committee are as follows:
Laurent Bopp, Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et l'Environnement, France
Walter Geibert, AWI-Bremerhaven, Germany
Maeve Lohan, University of Southampton, UK
Maite Maldonado, University of British Columbia, Canada
Jun Nishioka, Hokkaido University, Japan
Sunil Kumar Singh, Physical Research Laboratory, India
Past DMC members: Reiner Schlitzer, Alfred Wegener Institute (co-chair 2007-2012), Chris Measures, University of Hawaii (co-chair 2007-2013), Andrew Bowie, University of Tasmania, Australia (co-chair 2012-2017) William Jenkins, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (2007-2014) and Jing Zhang (2007-2017).
