The fundamental objectives of United States
Global Ocean Ecosystems Dynamics (U.S. GLOBEC) Program are dependent upon the
cooperation of scientists from several disciplines. Physicists, biologists, and
chemists must make use of data collected during U.S. GLOBEC field programs to
further our understanding of the interplay of physics, biology, and chemistry.
Our objectives require quantitative analysis of interdisciplinary data sets
and, therefore, data must be exchanged between researchers. To extract the full
scientific value, data must be made available to the scientific community on a
Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office.
