At domain-specific data repositories, curation that strives for FAIR principles often entails transforming data submissions to improve understanding and reuse. The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO, has been using declarative language to define its data processing steps because they can be easily encoded as provenance records. This provenance enables 1) transparency across the data curation process, 2) speedy, consistent data management across repository staff, and 3) query, inspection and quality control across data holdings. This poster was presented at the 2021 Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Winter Meeting held virtually in January 2021.
