Description:
The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) was created to serve PIs funded by the NSF Biological and Chemical Oceanography Sections as a location where marine biogeochemical, ecological and oceanographic data and information developed in the course of scientific research can easily be disseminated, protected, and stored on short and intermediate time-frames. Our main objective is to support the scientific community through improved access to ocean science data.

The Tetherless World Constellation is working with the BCO-DMO group to bring the Semantic eScience world to Ocean Sciences. Our goal is to take the meta data collected from the submited datasets and, using an ontology, provide semantic access for scientists through smarter search capabilities, and better representation of their data.
