Session Abstract:
This session will introduce the Marine Data Cluster with brief presentations from chairs and founding members, followed by an open discussion on what the Marine Data Cluster should focus on in the first year. What problems will we tackle? What are the most important Marine Data topics on which this group can focus its efforts?

A few examples:
  • NetCDF-CF compliance
  • Preserving calibration information
  • Software portability and reusability
  • Best practices for managing 24 Hz CTD data

The main goal of this session will be to determine the most useful 2 or 3 topics to begin addressing in the first calls. We will also brainstorm the infrastructure and support needs and opportunities of the cluster.

Session Takeaways (post-meeting):
1) Winter 2019 ESIP launch of the Marine Data Cluster, geared towards addressing advancements, challenges, and collaborations as it pertains to data management in the marine geosciences.
2) The interests of Marine Data Cluster in terms of actionable short-term goals are broad yet interrelated, spanning standardization of vocabulary, parameter reconstruction, and data harmonization across sub-disciplines.
3) The topics to begin addressing in 2019 are: NetCDF-CF compliance, best practices for managing software implementation, and best practices for managing specific marine data types.
