Abstract: SISMER (Systèmes d'Informations Scientifiques pour la Mer) was created in 1990. Since 1997 it belongs to the Computer, Informatics and Marine Data (IDM) Department of the Marine Technology & Information System Directorship (TMSI) of IFREMER. It participates in the "Information Systems for Oceanography" programme of the institute key action "Major Equipment for Oceanography". As defined in its missions, it designs and operates scientific information systems and databases for national and international projects in the marine domain, in collaboration with ISIB (Ingénierie des Systèmes d'Informations du Centre de Brest) Service. It is the Designated National Oceanographic Data Centre for France (French NODC) for the International Oceanographic Data Exchange programme (IODE) of UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, following the former Bureau National des Données Océaniques (BNDO). This French oceanographic data banking activity dates from 1968, and covers the fields of marine physics, chemical, underway geophysics and general information on French oceanographic cruises (cruise summary reports) and data sets. Sea cruise information (meta-data) and conventional data collected during national and international projects are systematically compiled, safeguarded and disseminated. Standardised Quality Assurance procedures are implemented for data formatting and checking, standards to insure comparability of data from various sources. SISMER contributes to data management structures of several national international scientific projects
