[MGI36-P03] Open data action to publish the GNSS-A seafloor geodetic data
Keywords:open data, data journal, seafloor geodesy
First, we published our datasets on our web site (https://www1.kaiho.mlit.go.jp/KOHO/chikaku/kaitei/sgs/datalist_e.html). However, this is not an appropriate way because the description of the datasets in not sufficient for other researches to use. In addition, our site has not a function to mint DOIs for datasets. To solve this problem, we published our datasets as data paper (Yokota et al. 2018). Data paper is a peer-reviewed paper for descriptions of datasets that advances reuse of the data. Our intention is for data paper to widely share the GNSS-A datasets to promote further advances of seismology and geodesy.
