                                          outlined in MSA, NOAA’s DSC-RTP will serve as a central data aggregator and distributor.
                                          The DSC-RTP geodatabase will represent a baseline of historical observations from
                                          samples archived in museums, research institutions, and scientific literature augmented
                                          by observations collected during deep-water in situ surveys conducted as part of regional
                                          fieldwork initiatives.
