2 Page 2© Crown copyright Aim The aim of the water temperature metadata pilot project (META-T PP) is:- To investigate and recommend the use of metadata to improve the quality and usefulness of ocean temperature information, particularly in real-time. Website

3 Page 3© Crown copyright Current status Workshop 28 th – 29 th March 2006 at ECMWF, Reading, UK 2 documents:- - Categorisation of metadata - Requirements matrix Data stream reports:- - VOS - XBT (SOOP) - Moored buoys - Drifting buoys - Argo

4 Page 4© Crown copyright Plans for the future  Each data stream compared to the metadata categorisation and matrix  Recommendations can be made what to include in: - real-time (incl. BUFR, TT-Coding) -delayed-mode transmission formats (push / pull) through documentation and trial  Trial (within data streams) including data transmission and storage (ODAS & NOAA)

5 Page 5© Crown copyright Actions from ETMC relating to META-T Work with the Task Team on Delayed Mode VOS data flow (TT-DMVOS) to change the delayed- mode exchange format Work on BUFR to ensure metadata fields included for all data streams Liaise with NMDIS over ODAS metadata database to enable it to meet user requirements and agree a format to exchange / ingest metadata (perhaps XML) – link to SOT TT-Coding?

7 Page 7© Crown copyright Request for SOT to take part!  Look at website  Work with current member of META-T or volunteer to take part, particularly help will be required to produce & review documents, develop metadata ingestion / distribution formats and aid trial(s) by providing systems / vessels / platforms, specifications for data storage (server spec), etc
