LEGOS (Laboratoire d’Etudes en Géophysique et Océanographie Spatiales) on behalf of GO2NE/GOOD – France

The aim is to launch an internationally coordinated effort towards the building of an open-access Global Ocean Oxygen Database and ATlas (GO2DAT). 

It would comply with the FAIR principles, combining data from the coastal and open ocean, measured from Eulerian and Lagrangian platforms, adopting a community-agreed metadata format, fully documented quality control and flagging procedures. 

GO2DAT will harness the potential of the increasing number of O2 profiles, expected to quadruple in the future. It will allow the user to make an informed choice on data that are fit for purpose and will facilitate the dissemination of information on ocean deoxygenation to a wide community of stakeholders. GO2DAT products will support the education of the young generation and general public. 

A roadmap towards GO2DAT, involving data providers, data managers and end-users was published in 2021 (Grégoire et al., 2021). 

Start date: 01/04/2022
End date: 01/04/2027
