Quality control

All our data are subject to a minimum of automatic real-time quality control tests and the resultant flags are vital to understanding the context and reliability of the data. We highly recommend that you familiarise yourself with the basics of the Argo format, particularly with regard to data quality.

For applications particularly sensitive to pressure biases, or otherwise in need of best quality data, we recommend using only delayed mode profiles (identified by a 'D' suffix). "Delayed mode" variable names (e.g. TEMP_ADJUSTED) should be used in preference to the raw versions (e.g. TEMP).

Further details on data quality control can be found here.
