Investigators at the USGS Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center (WHCMSC) (previously Woods Hole Science Center (WHSC), previously the Woods Hole Field Center) and colleagues, or investigators in the USGS Coastal and Marine Geology Program (CMGP), acquired and processed the data in this database. The WHCMSC maintains oceanographic sensors, data-acquisition systems, and platforms for deployment and recovery of instruments in the coastal ocean. The USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center (PCMSC) and St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (SPCMSC) both are developing their collections of equipment used for oceanographic research. Oceanographic time-series data collected by instrumentation maintained by any of the USGS Coastal and Marine Science Centers may be included in this database. In addition to deploying oceanographic instrumentation for field experiments, WHCMSC or PCMSC personnel have been responsible for developing software for data processing, evaluating the data, preparing the data for scientific analysis, and enabling the public to access the data.
The current database manager is Ellyn Montgomery, who is responsible for software development and validation, data quality control, and oversight of data processing. She is the point of contact for the database and can be reached at email@example.com or by phone at (508) 508-8700 ext. 2356.
