How to ensure your data is in the IDP2017

A flowchart describing the steps to follow in order to ensure your GEOTRACES data are included in the Intermediate Data Product 2017 (IDP2017) is presented below.

As illustrated in the flowchart, there are two parallel pathways - (1) data submission to the GEOTRACES Data Assembly Centre (GDAC) and, (2) the intercalibration process for the 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 IDP2017.

If you have any questions regarding the flowchart please contact the GDAC team or Elena Masferrer (IPO Officer).
