Data delivery

Once MERP data have been received and ingested into the database many of the datasets will be made available for online delivery via the National Oceanographic Database (NODB) All data series data delivery application. Further information about the status of these data is provided in the MERP data inventories. These data are freely available to MERP participants and the wider scientific community.

To download these data, you are required to be a registered BODC web user. If you have already registered, please log in when asked. Alternatively, follow the Register link to become a new user. Simply provide a few details and you will be eligible to download these data, subject to the NERC data policy.

Certain MERP data sets (for example, much of the discrete sample data) are not available for online delivery and will mostly be delivered manually. These datasets can be requested by contacting BODC directly via Arwen Bargery.
