PI: Alice Chalmers (Dept of Marine Sciences, Univ of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA)

Support: Georgia Sea Grant College Program (R/WQ-8-PD)

Timeframe: 6/1/99 - 2/28/01 (complete)

Project Overview:

  • To create a digital archive of historic water quality data sets from coastal Georgia with particular attention placed on data in the NOAA Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve.
  • To establish a protocol appropriate for archiving the data in cooperation with NOAA National Oceanographic Data Center.
  • To create CD-roms and an on-line database containing data associated with coastal Georgia.
  • To create a catalog of other data that would be archived as time and funding permit. The catalog would include locations of the data, i.e., websites, libraries, individuals, etc.

A web site was established that makes historical data collected along the coast of Georgia available to all interested persons.
