SEALOG is an application used by scientific teams involved in collecting biological samples. It features functions for integrating biological data and analysing taxonomy.
This application is available on request from the oceanographic fleet department (DFO) at or prior to the cruise preparation meeting for ships carrying an electronics engineer. It is installed on a single work station aboard ship prior to the start of the cruise.
Leveraging data imported from the CASINO and ADELIE applications, SEALOG enables the user to create and complete data from:
- Surface operations
- Diving operations
- Mooring operations
SEALOG extracts the essential information from data acquired aboard ship, relating to the samples collected during the cruise. It is also possible to extract cruise reports from the software:
- List of samples collected and their associated managers
- Report on each dive and its associated events
SEALOG generates a database containing a summary of this information which will then be imported into the cruise catalogue in accordance with a procedure which involves the scientific team and the scientific information system SISMER. This procedure is covered by the utmost confidentiality.
