Description (last modified by ko23) (diff)

After discussion between Roy and myself, this takes the form of:

Mappings to existing structures

  • Cruise name/no. - local ID in dgMetadataID.
  • Cruise period - activity from/to dates.
  • Chief scientists - PI role for cruise.
  • Objectives and brief narrative - abstract in description section.
  • Project - which I will refer to as "commissioning project", linked as related activity.
  • PIs - the CSR means the people responsible for the data set, so these should be the data set creator(s).
  • Responsible lab - this is the project manager role for the cruise.
  • Co-ordinating body relates to project and is therefore the PM role for the commissioning project.
  • Summary of measurements - Summaries DEs linked by deployments
  • Track chart etc. - covered by coverage.
  • Moorings etc. - dgMooring already has a pointer to deploying cruise.

Roy says:"semantics of the word 'mooring' comes into this one. The thinking behind ROSCOP is that 'mooring' is anything thrown over the side of the ship and left to fend for itself until it is (possibly) picked up again at a later date (never seen unruly scientists included though). The difference between with drifters is that they have a device to tell people where they are rather than something to stop them moving. My gut tells me life would be easier to carry the ROSCOP definition through into MOLES to make ROSCOP/MOLES mapping simpler."

Drifters may complicate this, as they have their own track, but unless there are more thoughts, we can go with this via the deployment coverage element.


  • Ship - platform, but explicitly linked via a "dgVessel" element under dgCruise.
  • Port of departure/return - explicit elements under dgCruise, as terms from a vocab/gazeteer.
