OceanBestPractices (OBP) is a secure, permanent document (and other objects) repository. It aims to provide a discovery point for research groups to search and find community accepted existing ocean best practices. This service also invites the ocean research, observation and data/information management communities to submit their own best practice documents to share globally with their colleagues. More...

Please note unless it has been accepted and annotated in OBPS as an Endorsed Practice by an Expert Panel, inclusion of a methodology in the OBPS, does not indicate that the methodology is recommended by OBPS.
