12 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 12 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. SeaDataNet Services SeaDataNet Quality Control is one of the “off-line” services that provides methodologies, standards and tools to ensure the reliability, compatibility, coherence of the data:  a common Quality Control Protocol  a tool for visualization and automatic checks (ODV) On-line services off-line services

13 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 13 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. QC procedures  Overview (IOC, ICES, EU recommendations, MEDAR Protocol) automatic and visual controls on the data and their metadata. Data measured from the same instrument and coming from the same “cruise” are organized at the same file, reformatted to the same exchange format and then are subject to a series of quality tests: 1.check of the format 2.check of the location and time 3.check of measurements The results of the automatic control are attached as QC flags to each data value. Validation or correction is made manually to the QC flags and NOT to the data. The results of the QC reported to the data originator to give feedback and ask questions.

14 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 14 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices MEDATLAS Quality Flags values (based to the GTSPP Flag Scale definition) 0: No QC 1: Correct value 2: Out of statistics but not obviously wrong 3: Doubtful value 4: Bad value 5: Modified value (only for the location, date, bottom depth) 9: missing value

15 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 15 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices SEADATANET Quality Flags values (L021) (Based on IGOSS/UOT/GTSPP & Argo QC flags) Quality flags 0No quality control 1The value appears to be correct 2The value appears to be probably good 3The value appears probably bad 4The value appears erroneous Information flags 5The value has been changed 6Below detection limit 7In excess of quoted value 8Interpolated value 9Missing value AIncomplete information

16 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 16 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. Main QC procedures description  Format Check Detects anomalies like wrong platform codes or names, parameters name or units, missing mandatory information like reference to a cruise or observation system, source laboratory, sensor type No further control should be made before the correction and validation of the archive format

17 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 17 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. Main QC procedures description  Check of date and location For vertical profiles duplicate entries date: reasonable date, station date within the begin and end date of the cruise. ship velocity between two consecutive stations. (e.g., speed >15 knots means wrong station date or wrong station location). location/shoreline: on land position bottom sounding: out of the regional scale, compared with the reference surroundings For time series of fixed mooring sensor depth checks: less than the bottom depth series duration checks: consistence with the start and end date of the dataset duplicate moorings checks land position checks

18 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 18 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices Conventional techniques Algorithms - comparison of the location, time of the measurements (5 miles, 15 mins in GTSPP) - comparison of the measurements - comparison of extra metadata (platform codes- floats id, … ) Visualization of ships tracks, transects, … Advanced techniques Unique data identifier -CRC Tag (GTSPP report 2002) II. Main QC procedures description  Duplicates checks  Keep the most complete data set

19 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 19 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. Main QC procedures description  Measurements main checks presence of at least two parameters: vertical/time reference + measurement pressure/time must be monotonous increasing the profile/time series must not be constant: sensor jammed broad range checks: check for extreme regional values compared with the min. and max. values for the region. The broad range check is performed before the narrow range check. data points below the bottom depth spikes detection: usually requires visual inspection. For time series a filter is applied first to remove the effect of tides and internal waves. narrow range check: comparison with pre-existing climatological statistics. Time series are compared with internal statistics. density inversion test : (potential density anomaly, FOFONOF and MILLARD, 1983, MILLERO and POISSON, 1981) Redfield ratio for nutrients: ratio of the oxygen, nitrate and alkalinity (carbonates) concentration over the phosphate (172, 16 and 122 in Atlantic and Indian ocean, Takahashi & al )

20 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 20 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. Broad Range Check Regional parameterization in MEDAR/MEDATLAS II (plus depth parameterization)

21 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 21 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. Main QC procedures description  Narrow range check qc flag=2, probably good data, after auto control qc=1, manually The automatic comparison with reference climatologies is made by linearly interpolating the references at the level of the observation. Outliers are detected if the data points differ from the references more than: 5 x standard deviation over the shelf (depth <200m) 4 x standard deviation at the slop and straits region (200 m< depth < 400m) 3 x standard deviation at the deep sea (depth >400m)

22 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 22 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. Main QC procedures description  Spikes check The test is sensitive to the vertical/time resolution. It requires at least 3 consecutive good/acceptable values. It requires 2 consecutive at the surface and the bottom. The IOC Algorithm to detect the spikes taking into account the difference in values (for regularly spaced data like CTD): |V2-(V3+V1)/2 | - |V1-V3|/2 ) > THRESHOLD VALUE For irregularly spaced values (like bottle data) a better algorithm to detect the spikes, taking into account the difference in gradients instead the difference in values, is: | |(V2-V1)/(P2-P1)-(V3-V1)/(P3-P1)| - |(V3-V1)/(P3-P1)| |> THRESHOLD VALUE

23 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 23 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. QC procedures description  density inversion test, the importance of visual check example of density inversion due to temperature increase with depth Suggested threshold value=0.03 for high resolution data, 0.05 for near surface and low resolution data Wrong Temp value detected automatically z1 z2 Wrong Temp value detected automatically, but it is correct value, the previous is manually corrected

24 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 24 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. Main QC procedures description  Large temperature inversion and gradient tests (World Ocean Data Centre, NODC Ocean Climate Laboratory) Relying solely to temperature data to quantify the maximum allowable temperature increase with depth (inversion) and decrease (excessive gradient) with depth (0.3 C per m, 0.7 C per m)

25 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 25 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices II. Main QC procedures description  ARGO Real-Time QC on vertical profiles Based on the Global Temperature and Salinity Profile Project –GTSPP of IOC/IODE, the automatic QC tests are: Platform identification: checks whether the floats ID corresponds to the correct WMO number. Impossible date test: checks whether the observation date and time from the float is sensible. Impossible location test : checks whether the observation latitude and longitude from the float is sensible. Position on land test : observation latitude and longitude from the float be located in an ocean. Impossible speed test : checks the position and time of the floats. Global range test : applies a gross filter on observed values for temperature and salinity. Regional range test: checks for extreme regional values Pressure increasing test : checks for monotonically increasing pressure Spike test : checks for large differences between adjacent values. Gradient test : is failed when the difference between vertically adjacent measurements is too steep. Digit rollover test : checks whether the temperature and salinity values exceed the floats storage capacity. Stuck value test : checks for all measurements of temperature or salinity in a profile being identical. Density inversion : Densities are compared at consecutive levels in a profile, in both directions, i.e. from top to bottom profile and from bottom to top. Grey list (7 items) : stop the real-time dissemination of measurements from a sensor that is not working correctly. Gross salinity or temperature sensor drift : to detect a sudden and important sensor drift. Frozen profile test : detect a float that reproduces the same profile (with very small deviations) over and over again. Deepest pressure test : the profile has pressures not higher than DEEPEST_PRESSURE plus 10%.

31 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 31 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices  effect the products preparation (bias the computations)  mistakenly reported and disseminated data III. Why to prevent duplications ?

32 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 32 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices III. How to handle the duplicates ?  There are copies of one data set in several in several regional databases (ICES), project (MEDAR) and global databases (WOD05)  The duplicate data should not be reach the aggregation level  The simplest way: the duplicates descriptions (metadata) must not enter the system  Submit only your national metadata (Project coordinator country= collator/data center country)

35 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 35 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices IV. Data reformatting In general the original formats of the data files cannot be used in data management  Incomplete/not standardized meta-data  Incompatibility with QC and other processing input format  Need of a unique format for safeguarding and exchanging the data sets of the same type Data management format, archiving format and transport (exchange) format may be not necessarily the same

36 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 36 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices IV. Sustainability of an archiving format The archiving format should:  be independent from the computer (and libraries) – RDBS are not appropriate  insure that any isolated data includes enough meta-data to be processed (eg. Location and date)  be compatible and include at least the mandatory fields (meta-data) requested for the greed exchange format(s)  Include additional textual or standardized “history” or “comment” fields to prevent any loss of information  Provide similar structure and meta-data for different data type such as vertical profiles and time series These rules are normally followed also for exchange formats.

37 OBSERVATIONS & PRÉVISIONS CÔTIÈRES 37 3 rd SeaDataNet training workshop, June, 2008, Oostende-IOC offices IV.
