attribute catalogNumber description String A record identifier provided by the data originator. The identifier is controlled by the data originator and reflects the originator's practices of data administration. Special concerns about the identifier, such as whether it is unique, how it is controlled, if it is persistent, or if it contains embedded information, can be addressed in metadata if applicable.
attribute catalogNumber ioos_category String Biology
variable eventDate   String  
attribute eventDate description String The date and time of observation expressed in local time using the standard ISO 8601:2004(E). Where date and time are imprecise, for example, time not recorded or day not recorded, ISO 8601 practice is to omit the components of the date and time string for those unspecified details. Where date and time imprecision are more complex, for example, "observed between 10am and noon" or "observed during the first half of July", supplement the use of ISO 8601 in this term with the use of verbatimEventDate, time, timeUncertainty, and eventDateRemarks .
attribute eventDate ioos_category String Time
variable eventDateTimeZone   String  
attribute eventDateTimeZone description String The time zone of the observation event, expressed as +/- hh:mm offset from UTC. While time zone information can also be included in the full ISO 8601 expression in observationDateTime, time zone is stored here for reliable use in nominalObservationDateTime and nominalObservationDateTimeUncertainty calculations. nominalObservationDateTime must be expressed in UTC.
attribute eventDateTimeZone ioos_category String Biology
variable eventDateRemarks   String  
attribute eventDateRemarks description String ObservationDateTimeAnnotation explains information about date and time that may not be evident in verbatim, ISO 8601, or nominal forms of the date and time. For example, date and time may include uncertainty, such as time of day left null because time was not recorded. However, data originators may be able to say that although time was not recorded, the observation is known to have been made between 8am and 5pm local time. observationDateTimeAnnotation can provide a concise explanation of this condition. observationDateTimeAnnotation can also provide explanation for how nominalObservationDateTimeUncertainty was determined.
attribute eventDateRemarks ioos_category String Biology
variable verbatimEventDate   String  
attribute verbatimEventDate description String The expression of the date and time of the observation in language identical to the originator's description of the date and time of observation. If the originator used a non-standard format or descriptive language for date and time, verbatimObservationDateTime contains this information.
attribute verbatimEventDate ioos_category String Time
variable time   double  
attribute time _CoordinateAxisType String Time
attribute time axis String T
attribute time description String In an IOOS service, this variable may appear simply with the name "time" or with the full name "nominalObservationDateTime". This term identifies a specific instant chosen to represent the date and time of the observation, in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Both date and time are specified in this term in order to facilitate some searches and services that require resolution of events to this level of precision in time. Some observation events occur with uncertainty at the level of minutes, hours, or even days or more. A nominal event date and time is determined, even for observations with date and time uncertainty, for IOOS services to best represent the instant of the event. The companion term, nominalObservationDateTimeUncertainty, defines an interval of uncertainty that quantifies precision to correspond to the precision the original data recorded. Methods for determining nominal time and uncertainty will be documented in metadata, and they can be explained (if concise) in the "observationDateTimeAnnotation" term.
attribute time ioos_category String Time
attribute time long_name String Time
attribute time standard_name String time
attribute time time_origin String 01-JAN-1970 00:00:00

variable timeUncertainty   int  
attribute timeUncertainty actual_range int 43200, 43200
attribute timeUncertainty description String In an IOOS service, this variable may appear simply with the name "timeUncertainty" or with the full name "nominalObservationDateTimeUncertainty". This is the uncertainty in seconds before and after the nominalObservationDateTime, as a result of both precision and accuracy factors in determining observation time. This use of uncertainty makes the nominalObservationDateTime the mid-point in the range of uncertainty equal to twice the value of this term.

variable footprintWKT   String  
attribute footprintWKT description String Well-Known Text (WKT) representation of geometry associated with the observation. For example, this can be a line segment or polyline representing a cruise path or transect. The location for an occurrence record may have both a point-radius representation (see latitude, longitude) and a footprint representation. This would be a case known to occur in marine data, where the record contains both a point along a transect, as well as a representaiton of the transect itself. The footprintWKT can also represent other geometry such as a polygon.

If there is more than one aspect of sampling protocol worth capturing, information can be concatenated into this term, delimited by semicolon. Contents in this term (either verbatim or by vocabulary) will be used consistently in a dataset. More extensive discussion of sampling protocol, effort and conditions may be provided in metadata as needed.
attribute samplingProtocol ioos_category String Biology
variable samplingEffort   String  
attribute samplingEffort description String Information about the extent, duration or other variable aspects of the sampling activity, as conducted by the data originator, that occurred at the time of the sampling event. In contrast to the samplingProtocol, which describes the intended method of sampling prior to the event, samplingEffort describes actual phenomena as they occur at the time of sampling. More than one type of effort information can be concatenated into this term, delimited by semicolon. Other terms are available in this terminology for some specific details of sampling effort, such as sample dimensions, that are expected to be frequently used in IOOS services. Use the samplingEffort term for additional effort information that is not addressed by other terms. Contents in this term (either verbatim or by vocabulary) will be used consistently in a dataset.More extensive discussion of sampling protocol, effort and conditions may be provided in metadata as needed.

Use the samplingConditions term for additional information about conditions that is not addressed by other terms. Like samplingEffort, this term describes phenomena other than the method intended by the data collector in the samplingProtocol.The difference between samplingEffort and samplingConditions is that samplingConditions describes the state of the environment, and samplingEffort describes the actions of the sampler. More than one type of information about conditions can be concatenated into this term, delimited by semicolon. Contents in this term (either verbatim or by vocabulary) will be used consistently in a dataset and will be explained in metadata.

attribute quantificationType ioos_category String Biology
variable quantificationVocabulary   String  
attribute quantificationVocabulary description String The names for derived values, referred to as "quantification", can be drawn from a controlled vocabulary or vocabularies of quantification names. Or they can be reported using the verbatim name given by the data originator. Either the name of the controlled vocabulary or the word "verbatim" should be used in this term to record the level of control over names. "Verbatim" means the names are not using a controlled vocabulary other than the names assigned just as they are by the data originator. Either way, within a dataset, identifiers for quantification names must be used consistently, and explained in metadata.
attribute quantificationVocabulary ioos_category String Biology
variable quantificationName   String  
attribute quantificationName description String A name for a derived value or processed data about the occurrence, for example, "Biomass". The word used in this terminology for such information is "quantification", rather than "abundance", because the word "abundance" may already be associated with specific, rather than general, practices of quantification in biology. In this example, biomass would not be obtained at survey time, rather biomass would be calculated from input data that was obtained at survey time, combined with a biomass calculation methodology. This term is used along with companion terms for quantification value, units, uncertainty, method, and determination details. It is suggested that names for derived values be more specific than "Biomass", because many institutions will develop biomass information using diverse methods. Suggested practice is to include some more specific reference(s) in the quantification name, such as institution, survey, date or other specifics. For example, "Biomass-PIFSC-2011", and explain the name and method of calculation in metadata.
attribute quantificationName ioos_category String Biology
variable quantificationValue   String  
attribute quantificationValue description String The value of the derived information product, such as the numerical value for biomass. This term does not include units. Units are contained in another term.

attribute quantificationUnit ioos_category String Biology
variable quantificationUncertainty   String  
attribute quantificationUncertainty description String An estimate of the uncertainty, positive and negative (+/-) offset of the stated value, that expresses the uncertainty of the value as calculated and reported. This can be reported in the units of the quantification, or as a percentage. Note that the expression in this term can combine both accuracy and precision considerations to a more general estimate, uncertainty, hence the slightly different name for this term from compared to the Darwin Core (dwc) reference term.
attribute quantificationUncertainty ioos_category String Biology

attribute quantificationDeterminedBy ioos_category String Biology
variable quantificationMethod   String  
attribute quantificationMethod description String A reference to the method used to determine the quantification. This will be different from the method used to make the observation of biological occurrence; it will be the companion calucation method that followed the observation method. Quantification information is expected to be useful only if method is sufficiently documented, so this term is vitally important for use of quantification terms for derived values. This term can contain a code or other abbreviated reference to a method. In all cases quantificationMethod should be explained in metadata and supporting publications or related resources identified.
attribute quantificationMethod ioos_category String Biology
variable waterBody   String  
attribute waterBody description String The name of the water body in which the observation was made. For marine data, this is the ocean name. If there is a more specific named region, such as a bay or reef, or sector of the ocean (for example, northwest Pacific), add the regional name after the ocean name, separated by a semicolon. Note that the locality term will contain the most specific name, such as a pier or other named feature, so that lowest level of detail need not be included in the waterbody term. The waterbody term is for the ocean and any named intermediate geography such as a region.

variable locality   String  
attribute locality description String The locality is the most specific named place to identify the location of the observation. Many marine data rely strictly on geographic coordinates, so the locality term may be null. If a locality is used, it may be a specific location or feature name, such as "Pier 39" or "Atafu Atoll", or it may include a descriptive phrase, such as "a tidal pool 1500 meters north of Pier 39". Note that in marine observations, the latitude and longitude may be more precise than any named place would suggest, because the coordinates often come from navigation of GPS systems. Geographic names can be secondary locality identifiers and they can be less precise than coordinates.

variable country   String  
attribute country description String The name of the country in which the observation location occurs. Such geographic named locations may not be available or applicable for marine data, and acordingly the use of this term is optional. In some cases such jurisdiction identification may be crucial for data attribution, management and/or use, so this term is retained in the terminology for cases where it may be essential.
