Relate to Device Operations in DShip ActionLog

Many of the snow, ice, water and other samples taken during MOSAiC will most likely only be analysed in laboratories on land sometime later. However, there are also analytical instruments on board already analysing samples. These analytical activities on board have to be logged in the SENSORWeb but not in the DShip ActionLog. This has to be done by adding an 'Action' to your analytical instrument in SENSOR as follows:

  • Go to SENSORWeb ( and go to your specific analytical device.
  • Push the 'Actions' button and in the appearing window that is listing the previous actions press the 'Add' button.

  • In the appearing window put as 'Label' the device operation under which the sample is logged in the DShip ActionLog. Choose 'Processing' as Event Type and put in at least the date on which the sample has been analysed.

  • Go to 'Event relations' in the same window. In the opening window choose from the drop down menu 'Sample taken from' as Relation type. Under Related Root Item Urn look for the shortname of the device with which the sample was taken.

  • Press 'Save' in both windows.

Storage of analytical data on MCS

After adding an action to your analytical instrument, you want to store the data in a certain structure on the MCS. There you need to create a folder with the device operation ID in the 'exdata' folder under your analytical instrument on the MCS.

Following the example above that would be: \\\platforms\towed_systems\topawi\exdata\PS121-WLZ_12-1_analysis

You need to create this folder yourself. Please do not put slashes in the device operation as in DShip ActionLog but substitute ' / ' by  ' - '.
