Overview

In the Linked Earth context, a working group (WG) is a self-organized coalition of knowledgeable experts, whose activities are governed herewith. This page is dedicated to the discussion of data and metadata standards for marine sedimentary archives (see this page for a definition of Marine Sediment Archive), and aims to formulate a set of recommendations for such a standard.

Members

The group currently has one coordinator, Julie Richey (USGS)

Specific tasks

We recommend that discussions focus on the following considerations, and explore potential commonalities.

Definition of essential, recommended, and desired in regards to paleoclimate data standards

For each observation type, we recommend:

  • structuring discussions around what scientific questions one would want to ask of the data
  • listing essential, recommended, and desired information for:
    • the measurements themselves
    • any inference made from the measurements (e.g. calibration to temperature)
    • the underlying uncertainties, and what those numbers correspond to (e.g. 1-sigma or 2-sigma?)
  • providing an ideal data table, so the community knows what to report and how to report it.
  • providing separate recommendations for new and legacy datasets, and for how to label measured and inferred variable (e.g. Mg/Ca is measured, temperature is inferred)
  • thinking about how the rest of the paleoscience community, or other (non)scientists may make use of the data you describe.

Marine sediments are a very ubiquitous archive on which many types of observations are made, and involving thousands of people around the world. It seems wise for this WG to rally around sub-groups start dedicated to data standards about the following sensors/observation types.

Previous standardization efforts

A discussion regarding paleoclimate data standards was started during the PMIP Ocean Workshop: Understanding changes since the Last Glacial Maximum (hereafter, PMIP_LGM) in Corvallis, OR in December 2013. Given the expertise of the working group members, the discussion focus on sedimentary archives. Meeting notes can be found here and summarized in the sections below.

The recommendations made at the workshop concerned new datasets only. It was recognized that different sets of standards would be necessary for legacy datasets.

Types of Data

There are three principle types of data that are relevant for the paleoceanography/paleoclimatology community:

Original data values

this would include raw values of all variables measured or otherwise determined on the substrate of interest, recorded against an unambiguous sample identifier (for instance, depth in the archive). This includes age control points (ACP) used to derive the age model of the paleo-time series, including radioisotopes (14C, excess 210Pb), and benthic stack comparison. All data that are reported for the first time in a scientific publication should be treated as original. The procedure of obtaining original data should be documented such as to allow full replication of the results. In the LinkedEarth Ontology, the original data values are referred as Category:MeasuredVariable_(L).

Note: Do not edit the polls (even for typos) once voting has started as it will reset the vote counts to zero. If a change needs to be made, make an annotation above the old poll (i.e., above the poll tags) and place the new poll below the first one.

Should the "unique sample identifier" identified at the PMIP_LGM workshop be:
You are not entitled to vote.
You are not entitled to view results of this poll.
There were 6 votes since the poll was created on 16:13, 7 March 2017.
poll-id 36C56A4F3693990E0936AB6AC7F8F158

At the PMIP_LGM workshop, it was proposed that the unique sample identifier consists of the name, geographical coordinates, water depth of the sediment core in addition to the position of the analyses sediment segment in the core. Is this labelling:

You are not entitled to view results of this poll.
There were 6 votes since the poll was created on 16:27, 7 March 2017.
poll-id 14714BE25ABC4C1A7B14ED87FE6B20B1

Depth can be problematic as a unique identifier since there are several to calculate or report depth in a sample (i.e., top-depth, mid-depth, depth interval.) and IODP uses several depth scales.

In the case where depth is reported for sediment cores, should we report:

Deborah Khider (talk) 15:29, 7 March 2017 (PST): I probably forgot ways of expressing depth, please add comments below.

Derived data values

this category refers to values of variables derived from other variables, derived or raw, original or compiled, reported against an unambiguous sample identifier and accompanied with a documentation of the derivation procedure such as to allow full replication of the result. This category includes algorithms of any kind relating depth to age that have been used to assign ages to values of raw or derived variables. In the LinkedEarth Ontology, derived data values are referred to as Category:InferredVariable_(L).

The derivation procedure is contained in the Category: CalibrationModel_(L).

Note: Do not edit the polls (even for typos) once voting has started as it will reset the vote counts to zero. If a change needs to be made, make an annotation above the old poll (i.e., above the poll tags) and place the new poll below the first one.

Compilation of data values

this refers to raw values of all variables from published sources, gathered for the purpose of quantitative treatment, recorded against an unambiguous sample identifier and labelled with an unambiguous reference to the publication where such data were originally presented. Reporting of data compilations is required wherever these are used to derive patterns or variables from the data other than those reported in the original publication.

LinkedEarth identifies each series using Property:HasVariableID_(L)

Archiving

The following recommendations were made at the PMIP_LGM workshop:

The data should be archived in easily accessible database administered by an editorial board. The database should included on on-line system for (1) the reporting of errors, (2) a community-driven quality flag system, and (3) the update of datasets as new data become available. Updates to a particular dataset should be assigned a version number with a link to the old and new references. The editorial board should also be tasked in identifying and archiving older datasets.

For versioning of datasets, see the proposed LinkedEarth standard here and use the Discussion page to comment.


'Additional' proxy data is widely measured along with the primary proxy data of interest (here, the primary data being the data discussed and interpreted in the manuscript). Often, this 'additional' data is not made publicly available, despite its potential utility for the community. For example, d13C is almost always measured along d18O in carbonates, many other trace element ratios are often measured alongside Mg/Ca in foraminifera, and multiple elements are measured by XRF core scanners. If it can be demonstrated that this 'additional' data has been measured accurately and precisely (i.e. by the reporting of standards), archiving this 'additional' data, along with the primary data, would allow its potential utility to be exploited.

Results of the poll placed on Twitter between June 22nd and 27th 2017
Should any 'additional' proxy data measured along the primary data of interest be archived with the dataset?

Trace Elements

From Jfehrenbacher:

"The properties described under Mg/Ca can be used for the other trace elements."

'Additional' trace element data is widely measured along with the primary trace element data of interest (here, the primary data being the data discussed and interpreted in the manuscript). Often, this additional trace element data is not made publicly available, despite its potential utility for the community. For example, Sr/Ca is almost always measured along with Mg/Ca, but rarely interpreted or published. If it can be demonstrated that this 'additional' data has been measured accurately and precisely (i.e. by the reporting of standards), archiving this 'additional' data, along with the primary data, would allow its potential utility to be exploited.

Additional information may be required for other trace elements (for example, for B/Ca were the samples cleaned in a hood with a B-free HEPA filter).

Mg/Ca

In the following table, enter the metadata that you'd wish every member of the Mg/Ca community would enter to make their data reproducible. To add more lines, follow this guide. For a definition of Essential (E)/ Recommended (R)/ Desired (D), see this page.

Micropaleontological Data

  • Report raw counts if available. If not available, then at least report minimum number of specimens counted
  • Minimum number of specimens counted
  • Size fraction

If the data were used to infer temperature or sea ice concentration, then the method (MAT, WA-PLS, etc) and the training set should be mentioned/required metadata.

Note: Do not edit the polls (even for typos) once voting has started as it will reset the vote counts to zero. If a change needs to be made, make an annotation above the old poll (i.e., above the poll tags) and place the new poll below the first one.
