slide3 Coordination Network

on Seamounts  Goals

  • Bring Together the Diverse Science Disciplines Involved in Seamount Research
  • To Communicate About and Discuss Seamount science
  • To Explore Innovative Ways to Network Between Seamount Science Disciplines

Breakout Sessions

  • How can we Develop as a Network
  • What Tools and Features will help us to Bridge Gaps Between Seamount Science Disciplines
  • How do we Facilitate Open Access to All Types of Seamount Data
  • How can we be More Successful at Explaining the Value of Studying Seamounts

Breakout Sessions

  • Split Up in Four Groups to Prepare Agenda for Final Plenary Discussion on Saturday
  • Everybody can Participate in Each Breakout Session in the Long Term, but we need to form Small Groups to Work Out a Plan
  • Elect or Create a Long Term Structure and Plan for How To Continue Past this Workshop
  • Long Term Participation is Possible for Everybody by Keep Supplying Information and Data or by Being an Active Contributor

The Seamount Catalog and the Web Portal

Orcutt, J

CEOA: Center for Earth Observations Applications


Building aSeamount Data Portal (SDP)

Creating a Seamount Data Network and Cyberinfrastructureis one of the Major SBN goals.

Using the Web Portal and the Seamount Catalog as the Starting Point from which to create this SDP.

Allowing the SDP to know WhereandWhat to find on the Internet in Terms of Seamount Data.

Making this Portal Interoperable with Other Authoritative Seamount Resources on the Web.


Seamount Catalog +

The Website and Databases contain alreadya Series of DatabasesandTools that are very useful for running an International Network on Seamounts.

Resides at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC).


What is Available on

  • 1,800 Seamounts
  • 4,600 Maps and Grids

Products …


What is Needed for a SDP … ?

Get an Understanding between Different Seamount Databases on Interoperability: Which Data or Metadata will be Shared and on What Level of Granularity ?

How to make this Interoperability most Efficient through the use of a Common Seamount Identifier, lat-lon info, or both ?

The SDP will create Traffic towards the Online Seamount Databases, but what about the other way around ?

What kind of IT Tools are required ?


Posters + Break Out Sessions …

There are VariousPosters displayed that will tell you What Kind of Seamount Data are already being represented on the Internet.

There will be two Break Out Sessions that will Discuss the Database Needs for designing the SDP and how to Effectively Relate the Data in All Ongoing Projects and Databases.
