Software with No IODP-USIO Support

On request, the System Manager will assist in the installation of software brought to the expedition by a member of the scientific party. This allows scientists to bring along the software they find most useful for their activities at sea. We do ask that the scientists have a legal license for the software, which will allow us to install it on our equipment temporarily, and that the scientists bring the entire installation kit, including all documentation, optional drivers, etc., so that the installation will be successful.

One caution must be mentioned in this context: Any scientist who brings software that performs a specific task is responsible for the translation of the data into a format which is supported by the IODP database.

Contributed Software

When scientists have a useful routine, perhaps to process instrument data or to correlate results of several measurements, they are encouraged to leave it behind for the use of future participants. The scientist having software to contribute usually coordinates the preparation of a manual for the software and makes sure that it is entered properly into the ship's software library.
