Abstract: The EVOSTC Long Term Monitoring (LTM) and Prince William Sound Herring Research and Monitoring (PWS Herring) programs propose an ambitious monitoring and research agenda. These efforts could facilitate a more thorough understanding of the effects of the oil spill if the new data and information on the spill-affected ecosystems are effectively managed and collated along with historical data on these systems. Based on feedback acquired from the EVOSTC Science Panel and staff, we propose a supplemental data management effort to execute on major tasks that have been deemed of high importance but are not being addressed by existing data management projects supporting EVOSTC programs (Projects 1412011D and 1412011C). This project proposes to increase the data management support for both LTM and PWS Herring programs by establishing a data coordinator position to improve metadata quality and best practices. Investigators also propose to process primary data into preservation-ready formats ensuring long term preservation of the data resource. Furthermore, this project will develop mechanisms to transfer and integrate LTM and PWS Herring program data products into DataONE, National Oceanographic Data Center and the United States Geological Survey Ocean Biogeographical Information System (OBIS-USA).
