Welcome to the Earthdata Forum! Here, the scientific user community and subject matter experts from NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs), and other contributors, discuss research needs, data, and data applications.
In addition to the SeaBASS information and data access link provided in the above post, digital object identifiers (DOIs) are now assigned to experiments (i.e., long-term research project) in SeaBASS. These DOIs are permanent identification codes that should be used for citing individual datasets. When a registered DOI is entered into a DOI search engine (for example, www.doi.org) the user will be redirected to a landing page website for the experiment at SeaBASS, which contains summary information and links to the associated cruises and data files.To cite a specific dataset it is recommended that at least the following elements are included, although formatting styles may vary by publisher:* PI name(s)* experiment year (or earliest year in the case of multi-year experiments)* title of dataset (experiment name)* distributer (SeaBASS)* date accessed* DOI (or SeaBASS URL if a DOI hasn't been registered for a particular experiment yet)Suggested citation format for data from a particular SeaBASS experiment:PI(s). Experiment name. SeaWiFS Bio-optical Archive and Storage System (SeaBASS), NASA. Accessed: date you accessed the data. DOI (add http://dx.doi.org/ as a prefix) or https://seabass.gsfc.nasa.gov if the dataset does not yet have a DOI.Example citation using this format:Siegel, David (1996). Plumes_and_Blooms. SeaWiFS Bio-optical Archive and Storage System (SeaBASS), NASA. Accessed: 01 January 2015. http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/SeaBASS/PLUME ... MS/DATA001
