Ocean Informatics

Formerly called Data Mongers, the Woods Hole area Ocean Informatics Group is an informal organization of people at the Woods Hole research institutions and agencies interested in data management, interoperability, and informatics for ocean sciences.

The name Ocean Informatics was inspired by Karen Baker's original Ocean Informatics Environment at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.  The name is intended to convey our understanding that our work is interdisciplinary, transcending information science and social science domains as well as the scientific domain of oceanography.
