|Abstract||The OceanSITES program is the global network of open-ocean sustained time series sites, called ocean reference stations, being implemented by an international partnership of researchers.
The main purpose of this document is to specify the format of the files that are used to distribute OceanSITES data, and to document the standards used therein. This includes naming conventions, or taxonomy, as well as metadata content.
