BONUS metadata collection

The BONUS data policy statement is implemented through metadatabases to which all the information about scientific data collected within the BONUS projects are submitted as follows:
  • New standard oceanographic data collected by the BONUS projects are submitted to the SeaDataNet through the National Data Collating Centres. Consortium partner organising the cruise is typically responsible for submission of data to SDN.
  • Metadata describing the secondary datasets compiled of/derived from various sources as well as resulting from non-standard sampling by BONUS projects are assembled in the BONUS metadatabase of compiled datasets. (Please note, currently entails only information regarding BONUS+ projects 2009-2011. This will be updated when more BONUS projects' data becomes available.)  BONUS metadatabase of compiled datasets View the metadata descriptors
  • Metadata describing the sets of virtual data generated as a result of various model runs are assembled in the BONUS metadatabase of artificial datasets. (Please note, currently entails only information regarding BONUS+ projects 2009-2011. This will be updated when more BONUS projects' data becomes available.)
