This document is the quality control manual for drifter data processed in the framework of the C-RAID project. It is derived from “Argo Quality Control Manual for CTD and Trajectory Data” (http://dx.doi.org/10.13155/33951). Specific information about the drifting buoy was also recovered from the “Guide to Drifting Data Buoys”, UNESCO, 1988 (https://www.oceandocs.org/handle/1834/2734).

The document describes two levels of quality control:

- Real Time Quality Control (RTQC) tests that perform a set of agreed automatic checks;

- Delayed-Mode Quality Control (DMQC) tests and procedures to be performed by an operator.
