Geochemical Sample Metadata


Retaining accurate metadata on geochemical analyses conducted on samples is essential for future analyses.

MARPA proposes the community maintain minimum metadata reporting, and suggests an excel format template complete with standard vocabulary that could be stored locally offline with each PI. This approach to providing a template would reduce work for the PI while ensuring that sample metadata and time series data are stored in a comprehensive and uniform format. Once in the repository, the data made public in a computer readable format would be available through any searchable web portal.
