The BlueNet Metadata Entry and Search Tool (MEST)

The BlueNet MEST provides a tool to search for metadata records describing marine data sets submitted for curation by the BlueNet project. The MEST allows users to search for data and assess its quality through a metadata description. Data available on request from government agencies is also discoverable using the MEST’s ‘Remote Search’ option.

It is not necessary to apply for a username if you are only interested in searching for metadata records. However, you will need a username and password if you plan to download data or create your own metadata records.

To obtain a username and password, please email info@aodn.org.au.  If you have forgotten your username or password please send an email to info@aodn.org.au.
