Blue-Action: Instructions for Zenodo: upload to Blue-Action

Added by Chiara Bearzotti 24 days ago

Dear all,
Some of you have reported on problems in uploading documents in Zenodo Blue-Action community.

Please make sure you follow these steps:
1) Log into Zenodo: no login, no upload.
2) You need to go to the Upload community,
3) Choose file, it must be in PDF, max 50 GB, try to avoid long titles with spaces in between.
4) Click on “Start upload”,
5) Under “Progress” it should show the % of the upload: if you have troubles here and it gives you error, please try to upload the file another time/another day, the system seem to be under stress at the moment… If you are experiencing technical problems, please do not send messages to me, but contact Zenodo directly:
6) When everything (all fields) are completed, click on "Publish".
7) As a curator, I will receive a message that a new record has been added to the Blue-Ac tion community and I will be asked to “approve” it. Thus it is not automatic that you see the record as soon as you upload it.

Thank you so much!
Kind regards,

Blue-Action: Your input for the "Arctic in situ observing systems" Survey

Added by Chiara Bearzotti 2 months ago

Dear Blue-Action colleagues,
We have been asked to circulate this request to all Blue-Action scientists by the project INTAROS.
This survey addresses Arctic in-situ observations of the ocean, atmosphere, terrestrial sphere and cryosphere, retrieved through established networks/observing systems as well as individual large projects.

Scope of the survey
To collect the information needed to assess the existing Arctic in-situ observing systems in terms of data delivery chain, accessibility, and spatial-temporal coverage.

Why is important?
The repository of the answers will enhance the visibility of the assessed data, and will facilitate data discovery for stakeholders and data users.

Link to the survey
Please reply to the survey here: [[]]
Please read carefully the definitions, scope and contents on this page before starting the survey.

Official text
We are pleased to announce the public opening of the INTAROS questionnaire to survey the characteristics of the existing in-situ Arctic observing systems (questionnaire A). National and international institutions, agencies, and projects that have been (or are still) collecting in situ observations from fixed or mobile, permanent or temporary platforms in the Arctic are invited to answer to the questionnaire. The received answers will integrate those provided by the INTAROS partners, will be placed in an open access repository, and will be used to assess the Arctic observing system and analyze its gaps. The assessment is in line with the assessments of climate data record and of measurement series done under the FP7 CORE-CLIMAX project and the H2020 GAIA-CLIM project, respectively. The repository of the answers will enhance the visibility of the assessed data, and will facilitate data discovery for stakeholders and data users.

In case of questions or comments, please contact: intaros-quest @

Please help us in spreading the word, the more replies to the survey, the better!
