Dear colleagues,

We are encouraging abstract submissions for the session titled "Ocean  
Data Stewardship to Link Observations to Research and Applications"  
during the Ocean Sciences Meeting to be held in Portland, Oregon,  
February 22-26, 2010.

This session will call together those individuals connected to all  
facets of ocean data collection, management and usage.  Our goal is  
to foster discussion and exchange ideas on how to better facilitate  
the interconnection of observations and research. Ocean data  
producers, managers and stewards as well as researchers, students and  
all other data users are encouraged to participate.  Please feel free  
to distribute this announcement to any interested parties.  The  
deadline to submit an abstract is 15 October 2009 – 2359 Eastern  
Daylight Time.  Late submissions will not be accepted.  Session  
details are included below. For more information on abstract  
submission please see:  http://www.agu.org/meetings/os10/ .


MT07: Ocean Data Stewardship to Link Observations to Research and  

Sponsor:  Marine Technology

Co Sponsor:  Physical Oceanography

Conveners:  Kenneth Casey (kenneth.casey at noaa.gov), Stephen Diggs  
(sdiggs at ucsd.edu), Danie Kinkade (danie at ucsd.edu), Alex Kozyr  
(kozyra at ornl.gov)


The last decade has seen a dramatic increase in the diversity,  
complexity and volume of oceanographic observations. These changes  
have stressed traditional data management techniques and tools,  
making it difficult to fully exploit the value of these observations.  
To meet these challenges and support an ever-widening range of  
applications, today's data management systems need to evolve into  
robust data stewardship systems, capable of working "smarter" and  
incorporating recent advances in technology and scientific  
understanding. This session solicits contributions from ocean data  
producers, users, and stewards to explore the challenges, discuss  
possible solutions, and generate ideas on how modern ocean data  
stewardship can allow the ocean research and application communities  
to fully realize the value of the observations being collected.
