How do I find a specific instrument or platform in the raw data archive?

Unless you already know the route to the specific platform and instrument you’re looking for, you should begin on the OOI website or data portal. Start on the landing page of the OOI Data Portal and navigate to the platform, instrument, or data that you are interested in, using the table of contents. Make sure that “Reference Designator” is toggled on (button at the bottom of the table of contents), so that you can see the full name of the instrument and node number. Use that as a reference when navigating within the raw data archive.
