SBC MBON Data Catalog

This catalog contains data from the Santa Barbara Channel Marine BON (SBC MBON) that are available through public repositories, with DOIs and revision control. Metadata can be browsed and data downloaded with the links below. Most of our datasets are ongoing time-series, and so code should access data through the repository API, so that it can be assured of using most recent revision of any dataset. For information on accessing via repository APIs, contact SBC MBON.

For an overview of SBC MBON's data management and packaging practices see SBC MBON Data Management Overview.
