Quality Control

NOAA/AOML is implementing quality control (QC) procedures in real-time and delayed-time mode for thermosalinograph (TSG) observations, based on the ten GOSUD (Global Ocean Surface Underway Data Pilot Project) real-time control tests. The real-time QC procedure has been implemented for the ships of the NOAA fleet and the Ship Of Opportunity Program (SOOP) while some steps of the delayed-time procedure are under development.
