Global carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations are increasing in the atmosphere, largely due to the use of fossil fuels. The oceans are absorbing about 25-30 percent of the atmospheric CO2, resulting in a shift in seawater acid-base chemistry and a decrease in ocean pH, making seawater more acidic. To help scientists assess this changing ocean chemistry, […]
An issue that affects data quality or data delivery.
Given the significant importance of understanding and modeling levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere (and its potential sources and sinks), Ocean-Atmosphere Exchange and Global Biogeochemistry and Carbon Cycling are two of the OOI’s primary science themes. We address these themes in part through measurements of the air and surface water partial pressure of carbon […]
OOI data team members have developed a new toolbox for downloading data from the Machine-to-Machine (M2M) interface using MATLAB, making data access as easy as 1, 2, 3. The work expands on the existing tools available on OOI. This new toolbox covers data from moorings, gliders, and profilers in the OOI Coastal Arrays and […]
OOI’s data teams have just completed an extensive, year-long review of critical metadata to ensure the quality and usability of data for OOI data users. The review covered data collected through the end of 2019 and included instrument calibration coefficients, instrument deployment assignments, and deployment dates. Moving forward, all metadata verification will conform to the […]
On Thursday, September 27th at 1938 PT, one of two chillers supporting power feed equipment at the Regional Cabled Array Shore Station had a fault which resulted in an automatic protective shutdown of the high voltage power supply and loss of power to both submarine cable lines. Power was restored to the system on Tuesday, […]
On Friday 8 December 2017 at 1:30 PM ET an error occurred that prevented the OOI Cyberinfrastructure (CI) system from loading new live data. On Monday 11 December 2017 the issue was fixed; no data were lost. We are sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, please contact the OOI Help Desk.
A data anomaly came to our attention during the Portland workshop last month regarding some of the OOI oxygen data.
