  • Description:
    "The U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS®) Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QA/QC) of Real-Time Oceanographic Data (QARTOD) Project Plan was established in early 2012 and has now reached its five-year anniversary. This report marks that five-year point by documenting QARTOD history and successes, and then outlining opportunities for future accomplishments. Each section describes a different facet of the QARTOD Project. Part 1 summarizes the history of QARTOD and provides context for part 2 of the report. Part 2 documents the accomplishments of the first five years of QARTOD under the auspices of U.S. IOOS and references the original QARTOD Project Plan (appendix A) developed in 2012. Part 3 outlines the goals for the next five years of the U.S. IOOS QARTOD Project. The original Project Plan proved to be an effective guide for establishing widely accepted procedures for the quality control of real-time data through the preparation of manuals for several of the 26 core variables identified in the plan. The original Project Plan mirrors the same strategy it suggests for its quality control manuals: providing enough guidance to be meaningful, yet not overly prescriptive. The Project Plan framework allowed for innovative ideas to be discussed and adopted, while adhering to the general direction of the work plan. The Project Plan Update builds on the original plan, while also steering toward outreach to a wider oceanographic audience and implementation of the tests outlined in each QARTOD manual. A major thrust of the Project Plan Update centers on establishing QARTOD as an internationally accepted standards effort for quality control of real-time data"--Page 4. [doi:10.7289/V5JQ0Z71 (].
