We would like to thank previous contributors to the data compilation :
Thank you to the members of the SOLAS IMBER Ocean Acidification Working Group (SIOA) for fruitful discussions.
The data compilation is described in the following articles :

How to filter datasets
Go to the page “Filter datasets”. You have the possibility to:
Click on “Spatial information”, “Experimental information” and/or “Biological information”, you will see bar plots showing the number of datasets tagged with each keyword and under each category. Click on these keywords to filter the datasets you are interested in. The list of keywords with explanations is available below. Regarding “Targeted species”, you can select the names from the popup menu or enter the species name(s) in the search window.
Click on “Bibliographic information”, and then click on search window under “Publication year” or “Dataset authors”, select the years or author names from the popup menu or enter year/author name in the search window.
The number of results displays beside the “Selection” button.
You can restart your selection at any time by resetting all filters individually (click on “Reset” at the right corner of each bar plot or search window) or by clicking the button “Reset all filters” at the upper-left corner of the page.
Download matching datasets
Once you have finalized your selection, go to the page “Selection”.
Right to the tab name, you will see the number of datasets selected. From the list, you could select the entries individually by clicking on the check boxes, or select all the entries by clicking on the first check box at the top. Once you have finalized your selection, you can click on “Download selection” to save the matching datasets as a single zip file on your local disk.
Unzip this file to get data files in separate folders. These data files can be opened using a text editor or any spreadsheet program such as Excel or OpenOffice.
View dataset on PANGAEA
On the page of “Selection”, click on the Id of dataset, you can see the dataset on the Pangaea webpage. More instructions on viewing dataset on Pangaea are available at the “Data description” and “Visualize and download data” parts on https://wiki.pangaea.de/wiki/Project_data_management/OA-ICC.
How to cite the data compilation
To cite this data compilation, please use similar wording to the example below: “For this study, we relied on the data compilation from the IAEA Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC).”
The location of study sites indicates where the studied organisms were collected or the location of the natural communities investigated.
The number of studies investigating the effects of ocean acidification on marine organisms and communities are increasing every year. Results are not easily comparable since the carbonate chemistry and ancillary data are not always reported in similar units and scales, and calculated using similar sets of constants.
In response to this problem, a data compilation is hosted at PANGAEA Data Publisher for Earth and Environmental Science and maintained in the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) project “Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC)” in collaboration with Xiamen University. The goal of this data compilation is to ensure the archival and streamlining of data on the biological response to ocean acidification (and other environmental drivers), as well as to provide easy access to the data for all users. Published data are made available to the scientific community in a coherent format and with a citable DOI.
Our team extracts data directly from tables or figures in published papers, or downloads the data from other data repositories such as the Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO), the British Oceanographic Data Centre (BODC) and the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC). Finally, we are contacting authors to collect data which are not readily available in the papers or other data repositories.
As part of the effort, the carbonate system variables are recalculated in a consistent way. Authors are always contacted to quality-check their data sets before archiving.
The compilation currently includes data from over 1000 data sets from more than 900 papers.
The list of papers currently included in the database can be consulted from the "Included/not included papers" page.
If any of your published data are not currently included in the database, please do not hesitate to contact us. The OA-ICC thanks you in advance for sharing your data, it is a great way to get more cited!
