Acronym: CMAR, O&A Data Rescue
Investigator(s): Paul Tildesley
CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere - Hobart [details]

Description: BIO_DATA Initial work includes a collection of Biological Field Data Sheets held in the CMAR Bio-Data compactus No. 1 in the Hobart Marine Laboratories Block 1 Store. The compactus has six bays, and holds research vessel log sheets collected in: 1950s - Vessel Logs including biological observations + Pearl shell measurements. 1960s - Vessel Logs including biological observations + commercial Tuna and Northern Prawn. 1970s, 1980s and 1990s - Vessel Logs including biological observations. There are a few papers relating to data collected as early as 1938. Stevie Davenport reviewed and collated the data creating folders of field data sheets withe a TRIM record created. Scanned PDFs were created. These scan were linked to the records. The final aim of the project is to have a Marlin record for each data set, and as the need arises, have individual CMAR projects transcribe the data, and then add these data to the CMAR Data Warehouse. Additional work was done in 2011 and 2012. Preliminary 2009 data is archived in internal dc-project_data. Data is archived c/o Datacentre /process/data_files/BioData. Data rescue work continues in receiving any archival data. Information has been archived c/o Datacentre /Data_Rescue folder.
