GSSN Standards Team

Leader: Dr. Stuart Gage, Michigan State University

The Standards team works to ensure that all data standards are well documented and are compliant with international standards for acoustic data archiving (e.g., ISO Working Group 54). They create standards for generating metadata for our datasets using Morpho (a multipurpose metadata editing tool) and stored in Metacat (a searchable database management tool), both of which are available at the Knowledge Network for Biocomplexity web site ( These tools are XML and EML (Ecological Metadata Language) compatible.
