An important step within the MyOcean project is to uniform existing Real Time Quality Control (RTQC) and quality assurance procedures of the different nations involved. As the MyOcean service is thought to be available at any time and open to anyone, an agreement in good Real Time Quality Control (RTQC) methods and procedures is vital to guarantee high data quality distributed to users via international exchange. The agreement on the implementation of uniform RTQC procedures have the severe potential to overcome the inconsistency within the existing datasets provided actually by the international community.
One of the various tasks of the MyOcean project - the Work Package (WP) 15 – deals with the scientific and technical validation of In Situ-TAC (Technical Assembly Centres) products and forms the frame of this document the RTQC procedure for Temperature and Salinity measurements.
