Do you really need ocean observing best practices?
They help you work with others; the data is more interoperable; and they are a good way to learn the best techniques in fielding sensors and managing data.
A team (called the AtlantOS/NSF/IOC Best Practice Working Group) has been building an OceanBestPractices System to provide sustained, open access to ocean observation best practices. This is being done for you in collaboration with well-known networks and institutions. The objective is to provide an easy means of discovery and access to support comparison and broader implementation of our community best practices. These practices cover everything from sensors and observations to data and information management as well as interfaces with users (1).
As you may be aware, through participation in the first Ocean Best Practice Workshop in Paris last year (2) or other fora, we have been making good progress in the IODE Best Practices repository (http://www.oceanbestpractices.net) and a linked journal for peer review (3).
A vital part of the implementation process is to ensure community engagement and value from the system, and so we would like to invite you to a one hour meeting on Tuesday 08 May 2018 @ 07:00 PDT, 10:00 EDT and 16:00 CEST to bring you up-to-date with developments, demonstrate the new semantic search interface and discuss next steps and issues.
Please let us know by replying to this email to email@example.com if you are interested to participate.
Connection details to the meeting will be circulated to those participating.
We look forward to your participation
