*113 - Big Data for a Big Ocean: Progress in Data Availability and 

"Big Data" is a term describing datasets that are sufficiently large and 
complex that they challenge traditional tools and techniques. The 
complexity of Big Data can be characterized by the Volume of data, the 
Variety of data, and the "Velocity"of the data in terms of measurement 
frequency. There are many efforts underway in the geosciences, and 
oceanography in particular, to improve the efficacy with which data 
consumers can accomplish data discovery, data integration and accurate 
use of information from multiple sources in a Big Data world. This 
session seeks to generate discussion and awareness of the community's 
approaches to these challenges by inviting presentations on enabling 
technologies, and innovative and successful ways to collect, process, 
analyze, discover, access, integrate, visualize, and/or preserve 
oceanographic data. Descriptions of interoperable approaches that enable 
diverse oceanographic data to be used across disciplines and by 
audiences beyond the ocean community are particularly encouraged for 
this session that provides a venue for ocean scientists and data 
management practitioners to describe progress thus far and share 
proposed strategies and solutions for the future.
