This pages compiles tools that community members have built to access, analyze and visualize datasets. If you have a resource you’d like to share, please send a note to the OOI Helpdesk. Please note that these sites are not maintained by the OOI program, as they are supported by outside resources.
The OOI cyberinfrastructure (CI) collects and serves data from the sensors and instruments. The CI team is engaged in evaluating data collected to date and in verifying the fidelity of the end-to-end processes that results in calibrated records in engineering units served to users on the Data Portal. In order to recruit the expertise needed to evaluate and validate the data from select instruments, OOI issued a request for assistance for Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). Check out the SME call, list of Selected Instruments, and the list of Spring-Summer 2016 Evaluators. Stay tuned for future SME calls.
OOI Data Integration
- Northwest Association of Networked Ocean Observing Systems (NANOOS) is now serving OOI data on their NANOOS Visualization System (NVS). Data from the OOI Coastal Endurance OR and WA Line Surface Moorings can now be viewed along side other sources including NANOOS, NSF CMOP, NOAA NDBC, and CDIP.
- Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) hosts data from OOI Cabled Array broadband and short-period seismometers, low frequency hydrophones, and bottom pressure sensors. Data can be searched on IRIS using the network designator “OO” or by selecting a station from the map.
- The NOAA PMEL Station Papa Surface Mooring is co-located with the OOI Global Station Papa Apex Profiler Mooring and provides the 4th mooring component for the Global Station Papa Array to match the other Global Arrays. Download NOAA PMEL Station Papa Surface Mooring data.
- OOI Glider Data in the IOOS Glider DAC – OOI glider data are now a part of the Glider Data Assembly Center (DAC) resource collated by the Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). As new gliders are deployed, the near real-time data are added to the DAC, while older glider data are available for download, and glider tracks can be visualized using the map viewer.
OOI Related Workshops
All OOI workshops and townhalls are advertised on the OOI website and compiled in the OOI Events page. These workshops are open for anyone to sign up. Future workshops will be advertised through the OOI website, newsletter, and mailing list.
Members of the oceanographic community are also welcome and encouraged to host workshops utilizing OOI data and surrounding OOI infrastructure topics. Please note that these workshops were not sponsored or funded by the OOI and were conducted independently of the program.
