In addition to the SeaBASS information and data access link provided in the above post, digital object identifiers (DOIs) are now assigned to experiments (i.e., long-term research project) in SeaBASS. These DOIs are permanent identification codes that should be used for citing individual datasets. When a registered DOI is entered into a DOI search engine (for example, www.doi.org) the user will be redirected to a landing page website for the experiment at SeaBASS, which contains summary information and links to the associated cruises and data files.

To cite a specific dataset it is recommended that at least the following elements are included, although formatting styles may vary by publisher:

* PI name(s)
* experiment year (or earliest year in the case of multi-year experiments)
* title of dataset (experiment name)
* distributer (SeaBASS)
* date accessed
* DOI (or SeaBASS URL if a DOI hasn't been registered for a particular experiment yet)

Suggested citation format for data from a particular SeaBASS experiment:

PI(s). Experiment name. SeaWiFS Bio-optical Archive and Storage System (SeaBASS), NASA. Accessed: date you accessed the data. DOI (add http://dx.doi.org/ as a prefix) or https://seabass.gsfc.nasa.gov if the dataset does not yet have a DOI.

Example citation using this format:

Siegel, David (1996). Plumes_and_Blooms. SeaWiFS Bio-optical Archive and Storage System (SeaBASS), NASA. Accessed: 01 January 2015. http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/SeaBASS/PLUMES_AND_BLOOMS/DATA001
