Data Access

R2R will archive a full copy of all routine underway shipboard data, as recorded by the operating institution, including at least the full distribution as it was delivered to the Chief Scientist at the end of each cruise. This copy may be recovered through R2R by the Vessel Operator or Chief Scientist on request. An inventory of the distribution will be posted online in the Cruise Catalog.

Individual data sets will be broken out according to instrument system and disseminated via the appropriate National Data Center (e.g. NGDC, NODC) after any proprietary holds (as permitted by the funding agency) are cleared. R2R will provide remote download links as part of the Catalog.

R2R will also publish a suite of Standard Products for each cruise, and serve them directly as part of the Catalog.
