OSDT Poster at High-CO2 Symposium

4th International Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World

3 – 6 May 2016, Hotel Grand Chancellor, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia

An OSDT related poster will be presented at subject conference:

Data Management for an in situ Ocean Acidification Experiment

Questions regarding the use of laboratory studies of the effects on ocean acidification (OA) have led researchers towards conducting more integrative field studies. New techniques and methods are emerging to observe the systemic, long-term effects of increasing atmospheric CO2 on various ecosystems and habitats.
Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) has been developing a package of technology and expertise called xFOCE (exportable Free Ocean CO2 Enrichment). xFOCE aims to enable researchers to draw on existing technology, methods, and expertise to conduct cost-effective in situ ocean acidification experiments.
Such in situ experiments will be multidisciplinary, use complex apparatus, and span long time scales, producing a large volume of science and engineering data.  Collaboration will increase scientific productivity and reduce cost, but introduces new data management needs. Replication will also increase the volume of data to archive and use. Here we explore the use of open source software to monitor remote experiments, to reliably collect and distribute FOCE data, and enable collaboration.
