Abstract One of MBARI’s goals is to develop sophisticated systems for investigating the ocean and its inhabitants where high scientific potential exists. MBARI engineers have developed a variety of novel research software systems for processing, managing, and presenting diverse data sets. Some open source software is distributed “as is”, with no warranty, express or implied, of the quality or consistency. The software systems are provided without support and without obligation on the part of the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute to assist in its use, correction, modification, or enhancement. Video Annotation and Reference System The Video Annotation and Reference System (VARS) is a software interface and database system that provides tools for describing, cataloging, retrieving, and viewing the visual, descriptive, and quantitative data associated with MBARI’s deep-sea video archives. Oceanographic Decision Support System In the ODSS, ocean scientists collaboratively design their experiments, communicate with other participants, track asset locations and command robotic vehicles at sea MB-System seafloor mapping software MB-System is an open source software package for the processing and display of bathymetry and backscatter imagery data derived from multibeam, interferometry, and sidescan sonars. The source code for MB-System is freely available. Spatial Temporal Oceanographic Query System (STOQS) Data STOQS is a geospatial database and web application designed to give oceanographers efficient integrated acccess to in situ measurement and ex situ sample data. Matlab scripts: Linear regressions Model I and Model II regressions are statistical techniques for fitting a line to a data set. Matlab scripts: Oceanographic calculations Calculate common oceanographic parameters (AOU, density, salinity, etc.) using scripts optimized for PCs. Matlab scripts: Sound velocity Calculate Vsnd (S,T,P) using a formula based upon the van 't Hoff equation. Visual Basic for Excel: Oceanographic calculations Calculate common oceanographic parameters (AOU, density, salinity, etc.) using scripts optimized for use with Excel.
