1 BULGARIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES INSTITUTE OF OCEANOLOGY IO-ODC 2003 OCEANOGRAPHIC DATA CENTRE

2 INSTITUTE OF OCEANOLOGY OCEANOGRAPHIC DATA CENTRE Oceanographic data centre of the Institute of Oceanology - IO-ODC was established in June 27, 2002 ( CESUM-BS Project initiative ) Existing as a department of the Institute of Oceanology – Bulgarian Academy of Science

3 OBJECTIVES To collate oceanographic data, archive and store it and maximize its utilisation To enhance the availability of high quality oceanographic data for a wide group of users To promote data exchange on national and international level

4 TASKS  ORGANIZATIONAL TASKS To acquire, accumulate, process and archive oceanographic data To perform quality control of the data To organize data in proper national and international standards To organize data catalogues To operate oceanographic data base To perform data exchange

5 TASKS  METHODICAL TASKS To work out rules for reporting oceanographic explorations To work out rules for oceanographic data processing and exchange To implement the best oceanographic data practice To maintain up -to- date infrastructure, hardware and software

6 TASKS  RESEARCH TASKS To develop and maintain oceanographic data base To develop and maintain file and internet servers To develop and improve the LAN and WAN connections To operate and improve WEB SITE and data accessing using WWW

7 STAF MANAGER – organizes and masters the activity of the centre OCEANOGRAPHER – feeds and maintains data base, accepts data, performs quality control, maintains catalogues and inventories, responsible for data exchange. SOFTWARE ENGENEER - develops and maintains oceanographic data base, LAN, servers and software HARDWARE ENGENEER - develops and maintains hardware – servers and LAN WORKING GPOUPS – scientists and specialists from IO- BAS depending on needs

8 TECHICAL EQUIPMENT  HARDWARE PC Microcomputers HP Series 7000 server – donated from HNODC Laser Printers Internet and Mail Server PC Rooting PC LAN

9 TECHICAL EQUIPMENT  SOFTWARE MS Windows XP Professional HP Unix – donated from HNODC MS Office XP Professional Free BSD MikroTik Rooter OS My SQL

10 EXISTING LAN

11 PLANNED LAN

12 DATA AVAILABLE  TOTAL DATA VOLUME - 4 GB 3.2 GB - seismic profiling data 800 MB - other research activities Data collected during 30 years activity of the Institute of Oceanology Bulgarian Academy of Science

13 DATA TYPES  Hydrophysical data: CTD-profiles Current speed and direction  Hydrochemical data [water sample (CTD rosette bottles and Nansen bottles) analyses]: Dissolved oxygen Nitrate Nitrite Phosphate pH Hydrogen shulphide  Geophysical data: Single channel seismic (boomer and sparker) Hydroacoustic Magnitometry Geothermic  Hydrodynamics and lithodynamics data: Sea waves Wave velocities Sea level Grain size analysis Bathymetry Geodetic measurements  Geological and geomorphologic data: Bathymetry Sediments Ooze  Biological data: Plankton Benthos Chlorophyll-a Ichyology

14 DATA STORED IN DIGITAL FORM  ON COMPUTER READABLE MEDIA Total volume MB - includes data collected during 26 oceanographic cruises and consists of: 539 temperature and salinity profiles 249 chemistry profiles (CTD-rosette bottles and Nansen bottles) 176 profiles phytoplankton bathometers (CTD-rosette bottles) Total volume - 3 GB – scanned in collaboration with EU/SEISCANEX Project 400 profiles of seismic sections

15 ACTIVITIES  CAPACITY BUILDING Staff training – two person visit HNODC in 2002 (CESUM-BS Project) Provide proper hardware Provide proper software  DATA PROCESSING Elaboration of cruise activity regulations in IO-BAS Elaboration of regulations for oceanographic data handling in IO-BAS Data archeology  DATA BASE IO-BAS Cruise summary reports database

16 PROJECTS  NATIONAL BULBIONET information network for the biological diversity in the Republic of Bulgaria  INTERNATIONAL SEA-SEARCH -A Pan European Network for Ocean & Marine Data and Information Management ARENA - A regional capacity building and networking programme to upgrade monitoring and forecasting activity in the Black Sea CESUM-BS - Centre for Sustainable Development and Management of the Black Sea region EUROCAT – European rivers catchments

17 NEEDS HARDWARE – to improve LAN facilities SOFTWARE – to realize new ideas COOPERATION – to participate in international projects for global ocean databases management and data exchange TRAINING – to improve staff experience and skills in data management
