ready Cruise Summary Reports

Abbreviation: CSR

General Information
Cruise Summary Reports (CSR = former ROSCOPs) are the usual means in SeaDataNet for reporting on cruises or field experiments at sea. Traditionally, it is the Chief Scientist's obligation to submit a CSR to his/her National Oceanographic Data Centre (NODC) not later than two weeks after the cruise. This provides a first level inventory of measurements and samples collected at sea. Information such as the ship track, objectives of the cruise and principal investigators contacts are also included among other metadata elements tested to be useful in by the marine community practice. The Reports have been compiled over time and encoded using . Though in the past a XML schema derived from ISO 19115 DTD was used, the current implementation utilizes the ISO 19139 Schema.
