Dataset Submission

As a GoMRI researcher, do I need to upload data to GRIIDC when I have a project-based information system established?

You must notify GRIIDC during Dataset Submission that the dataset is publicly available. The dataset itself must be submitted to GRIIDC or another national data archive such as NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information. If you submit your dataset to another national data repository you will need to identify the location of your data during Dataset Submission.

As a GoMRI researcher, do I need to upload my data to GRIIDC when I have submitted my data to a recognized national repository?

You must notify GRIIDC during Dataset Submission that the dataset is publicly available. You will be able to point to its location in a recognized national archive on the Dataset Submission page.

How do I upload or submit a dataset to GRIIDC?

The dataset submission process in GRIIDC is a 2 step process that begins with data management. The first step in submitting your dataset is the creation of a Dataset Information Form (DIF). Once the DIF has been approved by GRIIDC staff, you can submit your dataset to GRIIDC during Dataset Submission. Datasets can consist of multiple files that are packaged together to create a single file. If the file is less than 2 GB, it can be uploaded using direct upload during Dataset Submission.

Why should I submit my dataset to GRIIDC?

There are several reasons why you need to submit your dataset, but a major reason is related to the Master Research Agreement between BP and the Gulf of Mexico Alliance which established the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI). This agreement calls for the creation of a Research Database containing all of the relevant information collected or generated under the agreement. Section 9.2.4, of the Master Research Agreement states that one of the responsibilities of the GoMRI Administrative Unit is the: “Operation of Research Database.
