How to ensure that your data are in IDP – FLOW CHART!

An interactive flow chart describing the steps to follow in order to ensure that your GEOTRACES data are included in the Intermediate Data Product 2021 (IDP2021) is now available to download and it is also presented below.

As illustrated in the flow chart, there are two parallel pathways – (1) data submission to the appropriate data centre and, (2) the intercalibration process for that dataset via the Standards and Intercalibration Committee. You must follow BOTH pathways, which can be done concurrently, in order to have your data included in the IDP. To help you with these tasks, we have designed a new interface, the GEOTRACES Data for Oceanic Research portal (DOoR where you register your data sets for intercalibration and potential inclusion in IDP2021.
