A data submission tool is now available for submission of spreadsheets, NetCDF grid files, text files, PDF files, and shapefiles. This web app is designed to facilitate and streamline data documentation and registration, and is continually being expanded. User login is required (GeoPass), and the web app does not support Firefox versions prior to 4.0 or Internet Explorer versions prior to 7.0. For other file formats, or for large volumes of data files, please contact us to determine the best way to contribute data files. For more information about data submission, please see our data submission guidelines, and data submission metadata forms.
What to contribute
We welcome contributions of sensor-based marine geoscience data for discovery through our search interface, and where appropriate, through GeoMapApp. We accept both raw sensor data, and derived data products in a variety of formats. Reports, documentation, and images that enhance data usability are also welcomed. Data can be maintained within the system with proprietary hold or password protection, to ensure preservation and promote collaboration prior to public release. Contributing scientists will receive data download reports bi-annually. Sample-based data, including sample metadata, are curated by our partner data system EarthChem, please visit EarthChem's submission page for more information.
