DEEPEND Data Management
A primary deliverable of the Gulf of Mexico Research Insistute (GoMRI) was to ensure a data and information legacy that promoted continual scientific discovery and public awareness of the Gulf of Mexico Ecosystem. The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative Information and Data Cooperative (GRIIDC) is a team of researchers, data specialists and computer system developers who support the development of a data management system to store scientific data generated by Gulf of Mexico researchers.
All data collected by DEEPEND scientists is housed in the open-access GRIIDC repository. Data management, therefore, has been an integral component of the DEEPEND Consortium to facilitate access to data collected and produced. To this end, 70 unique data sets were identified spanning 12 research cruises over the five-year project, as identified in the DEEPEND Data Management Plan.
