About the "Data and Sample Research System for Whole Cruise Information in JAMSTEC"
On the “Data and Sample Research System for Whole Cruise Information (DARWIN)” the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Sciences (JAMSTEC) disseminates information for data, rock samples, and sediment core samples obtained by its research vessels and submersibles, and links to related databases.

DARWIN, GANSEKI and COEDO have been integrated into the new DARWIN in spring 2017

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.

DOIs for Information of Research Cruises

Minting DOIs for information of research cruises retrospectively have been
started to improve data access and reuse.
Please cite research cruises with DOIs in your journal articles,
presentation and website.

・A DOI is shown at the item “DOI” on a research cruise page. However, there
is a time lag between publishing page and minting DOI.
・To download a list of DOIs, take the following steps:
1. Select “Cruise” at the “search for” on the Detailed search page.
2. Click on the “Search” button.
3. Click on the “Save results as a CSV file” button.
