GEOTRACES Intermediate Data Product Naming Conventions

Please click here to view the GEOTRACES parameter naming conventions for the Intermediate Data Product 2017 (IDP2017). Previous version of this document used for IDP2014 is available here.

In addition, during the preparation of the IDP2017 the names of GEOTRACES parameters and cruises were formalised and they are available in the table below.

We ask for investigators to use these names during the future submission of data and intercalibration reports where possible to facilitate activities associated with the management of GEOTRACES data.

If you have any question or if you are not able to find your parameter in the lists below, please contact the GEOTRACES Parameter Definition Committee.
