About the "Data Research System for Whole Cruise Information in JAMSTEC"
On the "Data Research System for Whole Cruise Information (DARWIN)" the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Sciences (JAMSTEC) disseminates data and sample information obtained by its research vessels and submersibles.
Please refer to the notices in "Read me first" before using this site. To use offline data and samples please see "Application for Data and Samples".
JAMSTEC requests user registration. Users who register and login are able to download multiple datasets at once, extract data from multiple datasets, and visualize multiple datasets.
The user registration is used by the common user authentication in the marine-earth science data providing service “NUUNKUI” supplied by the Global Oceanographic Data Center (GODAC), JAMSTEC.
