Description 
Summary

The CSR (Cruise Summary Report) is used for reporting on measurements and samples collected at sea to provide metadata for scientists, data managers and programme managers to find information on who has collected what, when and where. Cruise locations are indicated by Marsden squares and IHB Sea Areas. Parameters are defined using ROSCOP (Report of Observations/Samples collected by Oceanographic Programmes) Parameter Codes. Data types covered include physical and chemical oceanography, biology and fisheries, contamination, geology and geophysics and meteorology. It is expected that one report will be completed for each port to port operation by the chief scientist by the end of the cruise. The ICES and SeaDataNet CSR/ROSCOP databases are now synchronized following the SeaDataNet Standards. The ROSCOP (Report of Observations/Samples collected by Oceanographic Programmes) was originally conceived by IOC (Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission) in the late 1960s in order to provide a low level inventory for tracking oceanographic data collected at sea.
