Cruise Summary Reports (CSR)
Cruise Summary Reports (CSR = former ROSCOPs) are the usual means for reporting on cruises or field experiments at sea. They provide metadata for
scientists, data managers and programme managers to find information on who has
collected what, when and where.
It is expected that one
report will be completed for each port to port operation by the chief scientist
by the end of the cruise.
ICES is a cooperating partner to SeaDataNet, which hosts and manages the CSR system. A number of dataflows into the ICES Data Centre incorporate CSR's into their reporting requirements.
