Workshop Objectives

The objectives of the 2nd IQuOD workshop is to continue working towards establishing a unique global database, to which the best quality-control (QC) procedures have been applied to the data, including setting error flags for each profile and at each temperature. At this stage, we are working towards assessing different automated and manual QC procedures for (non-Argo) temperature profile observations. We will be also working towards recovering all profile data and metadata that have not been included in the internationally public databases, many of which reside in data centers without being processed.
