In looking at the agenda for the seminar, it is obvious data management involves getting field and laboratory results in a form suitable for interpretation. To be more specific, I have prepared a list of what I have found to be the most important tasks involved in data management. The topics in the list are discussed in this paper as follows 1 Assemble field and lab data in machine-readable form, 2 Assemble supporting data, 3 Enter data onto computer and convert it to proper format, 4 Check all information entered and correct errors, 5 Calculate values from observed data, 6 File printouts of data, 7 Develop and maintain programs and files, 8 Maintain logs showing availability of data, 9 Exchange data with others, and 10 Other.
