Each Okeanos Explorer expedition compiles a large and diverse collection of scientific data, gathered from a variety of sensors and systems in a range of formats and media. Collection methods and processing steps must be fully documented and coupled with datasets for broad public access and for preservation in the long term data record. The Office of Ocean Exploration and Research data management team has developed several tools to provide access to expedition data collections. Timelines for data release will vary due to process time as well as the need to respect intellectual property rights and to protect sensitive resources.
