The IGMETS Metabase

The International Group for Marine Ecological Time Series (IGMETS) is compiling a database of marine ecological time series metadata.  This "METabase" will be a directory of time series sampling efforts from around the globe, providing information on the location, sampled variables, years and frequency of sampling, associated investigators and institutions, and contact information.  This directory will facilitate better discovery, coordination, and communication among time series researchers and within the climate and ecosystems research community.

In the following and linked pages, the METabase content is used to provide information at a variety of levels, ranging from geo-spatial coverage maps (e.g., "which sites sample diatoms or nitrate", "what sites are available in the eastern North Pacific") to tables of sites sorted by sampled variables or associated country.  The METabase will continue to develop as the IGMETS effort progresses.  You can use the menu items to the left as well as the links below to access the METabase summary pages.  If you know of a site not shown in these summaries, or if you have updates to an existing site, please contact us at [ This email address is being protected from spambots.
