Marine Data Science Special Interest Group
The management of marine science data underpins the credibility and reproducibility of marine science research, ensuring that unique environmental data are readily available for long-term re-use for a range of applications.
In order to improve the end-to-end approach to data management, this group will bring together interested parties to discuss issues such as the interoperability of data, use of standards and the visualisation of data, along with the organisational infrastructure that underpins high-quality data management practices.
Sharing best practice amongst and between research institutions, commercial marine science and data centres will have mutual benefits for data managers, technicians, scientific developers, organisational support staff, researchers and commercial science alike. Such benefits include:
- aligning institutional and community data management processes and those of data centres to improve efficiency and ensure data security;
- increasing access to specialist knowledge and experience across institutions;
- maximising the value of existing data through data discovery and citation;
- maximising the value of emerging near-real time data streams;
- and improving the accessibility of software tools for the community;
The launch meeting of the Challenger Society Marine Science Data Management Special Interest Group will be on Friday 9th September following the main Challenger Conference 2016.

Speaker: Rupert Howes, Joanna Post, Dr John Siddorn, Dr Siva Thambisetty, Professor Elizabeth Robinson, Dr Darian McBain
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, Cheng Kin Ku Building, LSE Campus and online
Many conversations about sustainability and climate-change focus on activities on land – the green part of our planet. This misses a vital part of the puzzle, the role that our oceans play.
Ocean and Coastal Futures - Bursary
As part of our commitment to encouraging and supporting diversity, equity and inclusion, Ocean and Coastal Futures is launching its first Coastal Futures Bursary in partnership with Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. This opportunity is open for young people aged 18 to 30 years old, who are currently underrepresented in the marine and coastal sector and face financial barriers to attending. Individuals do not have to be working or studying in the sector currently but must reside in the UK.
CLASS Modelling Workshop 2024
The CLASS Programme is hosting a Modelling Workshop in early 2024. This is aimed at UK participants only. Event details and criteria to sign up are available here.
