The University of California, San Diego, is constructing the OOI’s unique Cyberinfrastructure (CI). The goals of the CI are to provide: near real-time data delivery, quality control of collected data, calibrated and drift-free sensors, comprehensive metadata, accurate timing across the network, continuous data without gaps and low lifecycle costs.
The OOI’s Integrated Observatory Network, which will connect and coordinate the operations of the three OOI marine components with the scientific and educational pursuits of the oceanographic research communities, is now running and available. The CI will establish a mechanism and infrastructure for a variety of users to easily access collected data and apply it to their specific models and research needs.
The CI is a free and open tool that incorporates an innovative and adaptable approach allowing for 24/7 connectivity and bringing ocean observing data to a user any time, any place, on any computer or mobile device.
