AODN Community Engagement - September 2017

September - Presentations and Meetings

  • WAMSI1 Data Discussions, Meeting, Luke Edwards, 01 September 2017

Luke Edwards (WAMSI) had a virtual meeting with Sebastien Mancini and Natalia Atkins from the Australian Ocean Data Network (AODN) to continue discussions in regards to the upload of WAMSI1 data to the AODN Portal. Discussions centred around which WAMSI1 data would be focused on in relation to appointing someone to a short-term role. The decision was to focus on WAMSI1 data collected by organisations which had a decreased capacity to archive and provide access to the data, with metadata and data to be hosted by the AODN.

  • Helpdesk, Queries, September 2017

The AODN team saw seven (7) enquiries come through the helpdesk for September. A few queries regarding acronyms came through, as well a couple of questions on what would cause there to be empty fields in a downloaded data set - did you know that if it’s cloudy Satellite radiometer sensors can’t record the Sea Surface Temperature? The variety from month to month sure keeps us on our toes.
