Abstract
The Lofoten-Vesterålen Ocean Observatory (LoVe Ocean) is located in a highly productive costal shelf-slope area, and in an environment sensitive to external stressors. LoVe Ocean is a cabled multi-purpose observatory network with several nodes forming a westward transect, where the first shelf node and land infrastructure went into operation in 2013. The observatory nodes are equipped with a range of chemical, physical, and biological sensors. Data from the nodes are streamed continuously to the on-shore infrastructure through fiber optic subsea umbilicals. The data services are following best practice for findability, accessibility, interoperability and reproducibility. The discoverability metadata are available through the Norwegian Marine Data Centre. The data is accessible through standard file transfer protocols (ftp) and open data protocol (opendap), depending on the datatype. The sensor data that follows the SeaDataNet definitions are exposed through OpenDap, whereas data that does not have a defined standard are exposed in the native format through ftp, including echosounder data, hydrophone data and images. The data are organized by node and sensor id, and a dynamic list of sensor ids and data types is provided.
