Mesophotic.org: an information repository on mesophotic coral ecosystems

Mesophotic.org is a curated repository for information on mesophotic coral ecosystems, with the aim to provide an independent, open-source platform for and by the ever-growing mesophotic research community.

The web application is written in Ruby (2.5.0) on Rails (5.2.0) - see the Gemfile for a full list of gems.

Goals

  • Provide a comprehensive and dynamic record of all the published scientific information on these ecosystems and make it queryable through a single web portal
  • Allow for the exploration of spatial/temporal trends and identification of knowledge gaps through curated metadata for each publication
  • act as an institution-independent platform and as a shared resource for and by the research community to accelerate our understanding regarding the occurrence, composition and functioning of these ecosystems.

Metadata

The primary entities in the database are scientific publications, for which standard citation data and associated metadata are indexed. Click here for the entity relation diagram (ERD; generated with the rails-erd gem).
