|Abstract: ||The World Data Centre – B for Oceanography (WDC-B) of Russian Federation has been
operated by All-Russian Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information-World Data
Centre (RIHMI-WDC) since 1984. The operation of WDC-B is a part of the RIHMI-WDC activity, in which 3 divisions of the Institute are involved. Basic data management facilities of WDC-B:
(i) PCs, the corporate and local network;
(ii) the marine information- reference subsystem under Oracle DBMS to manage
information on WDC data as a fragment of the Russian NODC metadata base;
(iii) the specialized software for key-entry, primary processing, QC, reformatting and
preparing the oceanographic data sets;
(iv) the Web-oriented applications to provide a remote access to the catalogue of RV
cruises and the IODE data.
When it is necessary for preparation of information products WDC-B uses marine data
management system of Russian NODC for sampling, calculations, graphical and textual data and information viewing under DBMS Oracle and GIS ArcView.
Oceanographic data and information comes to WDC-B in accordance with IOC Manuals and
Guides N9 and data management plans of international programmes and projects. The data accumulated in WDC-B are supported by RIHMI-WDC primarily in the form of metadata
bases and data sets. The WDC data are held in the State Data Holding. The WDC metadata
are loaded under Oracle DBMS.
The WDC-B provides information assistance to marine institutions of various countries and
Russia in the form of data and the results of their processing applied for implementing
research programs and solving practical tasks.|
