Successful completion of the OOI Cyberinfrastructure will depend on effective interoperation with external projects. This will demand standard protocols and standard terminologies. The efforts to build data management standards, in both communications and metadata ontologies, will be critical to successfully building cyberinfrastructure solutions that ocean science needs.    (16ZK)

Before joining UCSD, John worked at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institution as a project manager and data systems engineer. He worked on the Shore Side Data System and served as the Principal Investigator of the Marine Metadata Interoperability project.    (16ZL)
