NEW! February 2020: In order to make it easier for you to collaborate with your teams, we have improved the user experience of your Groups’ online space. A series of icons and labels now guide your activity and help you post messages to the group members, create and organise wiki pages, send events’ announcements, publish and organise the outputs and case statements resulting from your group’s activity and browse all the members of your Group. One new area also collects the Plenary sessions your group contributed to.

We hope that you’ll find this useful! Please do not hesitate to send your comments and suggestions to the RDA Secretariat here.

The objective of this interest group is to promote the development of a common global framework for the management of marine data. This has become a priority as ocean sciences are being becoming increasingly global in scope and there has been a paradigm shift in marine research from the traditional discipline based approach towards more multidsicplinary, ecosystem level research. This approach is necessary to address a number of phenomena both natural and man-made the impacts of which require researchers from a diverse range of disciplines to work together. A pre-requisite for this type of multidisciplinary research is the availability of large volumes of good quality interoperable data which can be easily located and accessed. Facilitating the re-use of marine data is therefore a priority as the need for datasets increases to support the development of this ecosystem based approach to marine research.
