Populate the appropriate data template for your project’s data using the documentation for guidance and additional explanation. Review the MPSL-MLML Data Center LookUp Lists and work with the MPSL-MLML Data Center to add additional project specific codes to ensure comparability of data with CEDEN standards.

Field, Time Series, Chemistry, Toxicity, Tissue, Taxonomy, and Bioassessment Data
CEDEN accepts field, sediment, and water column data collected from freshwater, estuarine, and marine environments. Data in CEDEN come from laboratory, physical, and biological analyses and include data types associated with chemical, toxicological, field, bioassessment, invertebrate, fish, and bacteriological assessments.
The templates used to submit data to the MPSL-MLML Data Center should be selected based on your individual project/program requirements. Any of the templates on the link below can be submitted to the MPSL-MLML Data Center to transfer your data to CEDEN. If you have any questions about which template is appropriate, please contact the MPSL-MLML Help Desk and we will help you determine which template is best.
- Data Templates: Templates developed by MPSL-MLML Data Center, CEDEN, and SWAMP that distinguish between required, desired, and non-required fields for the CEDEN database.
Required data fields refer to the columns or fields in the template that must contain information in order for your data to be transferred to CEDEN. All data templates indicate which data fields are required by CEDEN and all headers and associated LookUp Lists are described in the Guidance Documentation. All minimum data requirements are similar between templates and have associated documentation to aid in data entry.
Please discuss your project’s minimum data requirements with your project or program manager. For questions regarding templates and required data elements, please contact the MPSL-MLML Help Desk.
