Issues discussed involved improving the data reporting guidelines for scientists (to ensure essential information is captured, allowing reuse of data sets), providing best practice for data curators, advice about data policies and management plans, common vocabularies and how best to make data available to the community.
BODC is committed to ensuring that data collected by UK scientists relevant to expanding understanding of the potential impacts of ocean acidification, are managed in an effective manner to ensure long-term worldwide availability.
