ready Marine Community Profile of ISO 19115

Abbreviation: MCP of ISO 19115

General Information
Marine Community Profile of ISO 19115 includes all ISO 19115 core metadata elements and selected non-core elements. The Marine Profile has also defined supplementary metadata elements and codelists to meet the needs of the marine community to support the documentation and discovery of marine resources. While, in late 2016 and early 2017 the AODN Technical Advisory Group met to hold exploratory discussions regarding a port of MCP 2.0 to ISO 19115-1, the current version relates to ISO 19115:2003. However, work has begun on a very preliminary document was compiled outlining the main ISO 19115-1 elements (and extensions) that may be required in a port that would continue to satisfy AODN Portal requirements.

Australian Ocean Data Network Portal
The AODN Portal provides access to all available Australian marine and climate science data and provides the primary access to IMOS data including access to the IMOS metadata. Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) is enabled by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). It is operated by a consortium of institutions as an unincorporated joint venture, with the University of Tasmania as Lead Agent.

ReefTEMPS is a sensors network initiated in 1958 to monitor the coastal area of the South, West and South-West Pacific. This long-term observatory allows the acquisition of several parameters: sea temperature, electrical conductivity / practical salinity, sea pressure / waves height & period / sea level, fluorescence, turbidity, with high or medium frequency (from 1 second to 30 minutes). The main objective is to study the climatic parameters of the tropical ocean with a focus on the coastal sea waters to monitor the long-term effects of global climate change and its impact on coral reefs.
