Abstract:

The long-term goals of this effort are to produce software capable of organizing and archiving metadata associated with the detection of marine mammals. The software provides a workbench for researchers to integrate queries for both biological and physical data by providing mediation services to support queries that cover networked data sets in manners similar to those used for querying the acoustic data. The data is to be accessible from a variety of languages used by the scientific community for analysis and modeling. Preservation of acoustic metadata can prevent the loss of detailed information that is not captured in scientific publications and will permit the analysis of decadal-scale data sets. The Tethys server at Scripps now has data sets that cover over five years, and we are beginning to see the first fruits of the preservation of detailed long time-series data.
