||A method for performing a cruise action.
||A method for retrieving data from a datalogger deployed at a monitoring site.
||A method for creating results by deriving them from other results.
||A method for deploying a piece of equipment that will not make observations at a sampling feature.
||A method for performing 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.
||A method for creating or modifying the data collection program running on a datalogger or other equipment deployed at a monitoring site.
||A method for retrieving equipment from a sampling feature at which or on which it was deployed.
||A method for creating results by estimation or professional judgement.
||A method for performing an expedition action.
||A method for performing an activity in the field at or on a sampling feature.
||A method for completing a non-specific action that does not produce a result.
||A method for calibrating an instrument either in the field or in the laboratory.
||Instrument Continuing Calibration Verification
||A method for verifying the instrument or meter calibration by measuring a calibration standard of known value as if it were a sample and comparing the measured result to the calibration acceptance criteria listed in the Standard Operating Procedure.
||A method for deploying an instrument to make observations at a sampling feature.
||A method for retrieving or recovering an instrument that has been deployed at a smpling feature.
||A method for creating observation results. This term should be used when a Result is generated but the more specific terms of Instrument deployment or Specimen analysis are not applicable.
||A method for creating results by running a simulation model.
||A method for performing a site visit action.
||A method for ex situ analysis of a specimen using an instrument, typically in a laboratory, for the purpose of measuring properties of a specimen.
||A method for collecting a specimen for ex situ analysis.
||A method for separating a specimen into multiple different fractions or size classes.
||A method for processing a specimen collected in the field to produce a sample suitable for analysis using a particular analytical procedure.
||A method for preserving a specimen either in the field or in a laboratory prior to ex situ analysis.
||A method for launching a submersible from a vessel or ship.
||The method type is unknown.
