Gauging Ocean organic Carbon fluxes using Autonomous Robotic Technologies


Data Management Plan

A data management plan outlining the management of new datasets generated by the project will be developed. All datasets associated with the project will be lodged in publically accessible repositories. The new glider datasets will be archived with the British Oceanographic Data Centre. Any additional in situ datasets or model output will also be made available, e.g. through Pangaea.
