On behalf of the Global Ocean Oxygen Database and Atlas Steering Committee we would like to ask you to complete a short survey (10 questions, less than 10 minutes) to help identify who, where and how ocean oxygen is measured, what type of quality checks and flags are applied, etc. Ocean oxygen data are a critical part to understand our ocean today and in the future. However, currently there is no common entry point to obtain ocean oxygen data of known quality from the open and coastal ocean, measured from Eulerian and Lagrangian platforms. Within the Ocean Decade Programme Global Ocean Oxygen Decade (GOOD) an effort called Global Ocean Oxygen Database and ATlas (GO2DAT) is trying to change this.
This survey, which is the first step to implement GO2DAT, will provide information which will be indispensable to have ocean oxygen data complying with the FAIR and CARE principles. Please submit your response by 30 June 2023.
