Projects List

This section provides a summary of ongoing and completed collaborative GLEON research projects.

What defines a project as being a GLEON project?

A project may be considered for inclusion in this list when
  • The idea was generated by a GLEON working group
  • The project uses GLEON data/tools
  • The idea came out of discussions at a GLEON meeting
  • The idea came out of discussions in a GLEON forum (or, for example, the GLEON tech list or session at another professional meeting)
  • The idea was presented at a GLEON meeting with an open invitation for additional participants
  • GLEON is acknowledged in the publication
  • GLEON was leveraged to get funding for the work (maybe wrote a letter of support?)
Simply put, anything you consider to be GLEON related or attributed to GLEON ideally should be part of the list. In the spirit of inclusion and transparency, we hope that project leaders, coordinators, and members agree and choose to post their project summaries on Project Tracker.

Projects are in a certain phase of their life cycle which is color coded:
GreenThis project is open to all participants who can contribute (e.g., data, expertise, or other)
YellowThis project has moved beyond it's start up phase, has defined it's goal(s), and is making progress. Further input (data, expertise, or other) is only requested if it is specially needed by the group to complete the project.
Red This project is completed (e.g. the scentific publication is out or other types of agreed end products have been delivered).
