Title Acoustic Metadata Management and Transparent Access to Networked Oceanographic Data Sets.

Abstract The long-term goals of this effort are to produce software capable of organizing and archiving metadata associated with the detection of marine mammals. The software provides a workbench for researchers to integrate queries for both biological and physical data by providing mediation services to support queries that cover networked data sets in manners similar to those used for querying the acoustic data. Archiving of non-acoustic measurements such as conductivity, temperature, and depth (CTD), as well as other modalities of observation is supported as well. The data is to be accessible from a variety of languages used by the scientific community for analysis and modeling.
