Technical support from GLOS

Posted by: GLOS_Admin January 31, 2018

GLOS co-hosted two webinars recently, both sharing experience from other regions on harmful algal bloom observations. Participation levels were pretty impressive, we think, and we’re wondering what else GLOS can do to add value to the Great Lakes data sharing community.

At your convenience, please take a moment to tell us what you’d like to hear about next. We’ve started with a few suggestions, but there’s also a space for you to share your ideas about what is important to you, and what would help you get more out of the open data hosted by GLOS.

Our next webinar is QARTOD 101: An introduction to GLOS  real-time quality control procedures.

March 13 at 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern

GLOS has recently completed its implementation of QARTOD tests for near real-time sensor data. QARTOD (Quality Assurance/quality control for Real-Time Oceanographic Data) is an IOOS project that lays out standardized tests for key parameters to ensure credible, unbiased reporting of data.

This webinar will provide an overview of QARTOD, briefly describe its implementation, present examples of its application using PI  data, and discuss data provider implications. GLOS is particularly interested in getting input of critical values to use in the QARTOD tests and suggestions for access to and visualization of quality-controlled data and the associated flags.

Keep an eye out for more details coming soon.
