Abstract
    The future data needs of ocean science and ocean resource management will require a more seamless and accessible coupling of biological data with physical oceanographic processes. This bio-physical data framework will be built through the active integration of data from an extensive variety of sensors, observers, platforms and data archives across a wide range of space and time scales. This necessary synthesis of raw biological data into useful information and potentially new understanding is dependent on both new developments in ocean exploration as well as developments in information systems and informatics. The Ocean Biogeographic Information System (OBIS) is poised to play a significant and expanding role in the evolving ocean observation system.
