Abstract
The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) pursues multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work to advance understanding of temperate marine, Southern Ocean, and Antarctic environments. IMAS' basic and applied research is characterised as innovative, relevant, and globally distinctive. Education at IMAS delivers world class programs, resulting in highly trained graduates who serve the needs of academic institutions, industry, government, and the community. The natural advantages of IMAS include a Southern Ocean location proximal to Antarctica and Tasmania, hosting one of the world's largest critical masses of marine and Antarctic researchers.

I mass is a Research Institute of the University of Tasmania we collect data
from around the world but in particular in temperate Australia and in the Southern Ocean and high latitudes right through to Antarctica what really
distinguishes I mass data is the amount of it because there are so many
scientists and research students working on data collection and its scope right
across pretty much every aspect of marine science we're essentially wanting
to establish three portals for data so
that they'll be taken up and used by other scientists all of these data from all three portals actually exist on the
same network the australian ocean data network collecting large scale
oceanographic data is particularly expensive and particularly challenging so having the data there having them
discoverable and accessible and uniform that makes them interoperable across different data types really means that
we're gaining the most from the investment of collecting those data the
first one is the ims portal for ims
itself there's a lot of data collected here so it's really important that those
data are made available for reuse that they're managed and curated properly reef life survey provides a really
wonderful way to see about space time variation on reefs around the world there are now data are available from
actually thousands of sites right around the world in tropical and temperate areas the research questions they're a
really important ones about how global change and multiple stressors are really impacting reefs worldwide there's
already been some very high impact work come from that data and the data set was
quite extraordinary in showing that summer in particular areas work very well and others really don't perform at all in terms of what is being asked of them the third one is an international if it we're calling temperate reef base and it's basically a repository for any data from temperate reefs worldwide and
the first data to go into this is a data collected on kelp beds the big question that we're trying to address there is
how kelp beds are responding to disturbance in the face of climate change and other kinds of anthropogenic stresses again kelp beds are just so
fundamentally important in terms of their production in terms of biodiversity the kinds of Fisheries they
support and yet we're seeing kelp beds
change on a global scale many of the challenges that modern society face a large and complex ones and therefore by
their very nature interdisciplinary so having large data sets that are available that can be brought together in an interdisciplinary framework can help solve some of these problems in a way that wouldn't otherwise be possible
opened out is important for a number of reasons first of all most of it is publicly funded and if it's publicly funded it should be publicly available but the other thing is that data are always being used other than for the purpose which they were collected initially we simply can't imagine how
important data will be for particular questions or how they might be used in all sorts of creative ways into the future in a more immediate sense we have a range of stakeholders across all sorts
of industries from fishing to oil and
gas marine transport industry aquaculture so much of our economy depends on marine systems and most of us live near the coastline so that data is just really critical to us doing the right thing and making the right
decisions around marine systems into the future the motivation for this project was that we recognized three distinctly
different but really important data collections and that if we were able to bring them together and brand them in the right way that their use and reuse would be accelerated and that they would really help to engender a culture of data sharing and open data
