||A specialized form of an expedition action that involves an ocean-going vessel. Cruise actions are typically parents to other related Actions.
||The act of retrieving data from a datalogger deployed at a monitoring site.
||The act of creating results by deriving them from other results.
||The act of placing equipment that will not make observations at or within a sampling feature. Actions involving the deployment of instruments should use the more specific term Instrument deployment.
||The act of performing regular or periodic upkeep or servicing of field or laboratory equipment. Maintenance may be performed in the field, in a laboratory, or at a factory maintenance center.
||The act of creating or modifying the data collection program running on a datalogger or other equipment deployed at a monitoring site.
||The act of recovering a piece of equipment that made no observations from a deployment at a sampling feature or other location. For instruments, the more specific term Instrument retrieval should be used.
||The act of creating results by estimation or professional judgement.
||A field visit action in which many sites are visited over a continguous period of time, often involving serveral investigators, and typically having a specific purpose. Expedition actions are typically parents to other related Actions.
||A generic, non-specific action type performed in the field at or on a sampling feature.
||A generic, non-specific action type that does not produce a result.
||The act of calibrating an instrument either in the field or in a laboratory. The instrument may be an in situ field sensor or a laboratory instrument. An instrument is the subclass of equipment that is capable of making an observation to produce a result.
||The act of deploying an in situ instrument or sensor that creates an observation result. This term is a specific form of the Observation actions category of actions, which is the only category of actions that can produce observation results.
||The act of recovering an in situ instrument (which made observations) from a sampling feature. This action ends an instrument deployment action.
||The general act of making an observation. This term should be used when a Result is generated but the more specific terms of Instrument deployment or Specimen analysis are not applicable.
||The act of calculating results through the use of a simulation model.
||A field visit action in which a single site is visited for one or more other possible actions (i.e., specimen collection, equipment maintenance, etc.). Site visit actions are typically parents to other related actions.
||The analysis of a specimen ex situ using an instrument, typically in a laboratory, for the purpose of measuring properties of that specimen.
||The collection of a specimen in the field.
||The process of separating a specimen into multiple different fractions or size classes.
||The processing of a specimen collected in the field to produce a sample suitable for analysis using a particular analytical procedure.
||The act of preserving a specimen collected in the field to produce a sample suitable for analysis using a particular analytical procedure.
||The act of deploying a submersible from a vessel or ship.
