      Vanden Berghe, Edward (UNESCOParis, 2011)
      The Committee will be briefed on the discussions on the integration of OBIS within IOC/IODE, and reminded of the earlier history. A report will be presented on the deliberations during the Ad Hoc meetings of the Steering Group for IODE/OBIS. The Committee will be invited to: • Adopt the recommendations drafted by the Ad Hoc Steering Group, on the establishment of the Steering Group, including its terms of reference; on the establishment of a Group of Experts on OBIS, including its terms of reference; • Adopt the Terms of Reference for the Project Office for IODE/OBIS • Adopt the work plan and budget as drafted by the Ad Hoc meeting of the Steering Group • Recommend to IOC that enough funding will be made available to continue the operation of OBIS under IOC’s IODE programme
    • Analysis of the QC/QA survey

      Rojas, Ricardo (UNESCO, 2007)
      A short online survey or quality control/quality assurance procedures was carried out requesting information about procedures and details of the manuals, guidelines and special software that are used by respondents for ocean profile data. This was to assist the intersessional working group established through Resolution IODE-XVIII. 4 to carry out its work that including: (i) review existing quality control procedures and software; (ii) discuss quality control issues of historical, real-time, delayed-mode and modern ocean profile data; (iii) prepare a report on (i) and (ii) above.
    • Annotated Agenda/ Action Paper: presented at the Twenty-second Session of the IOC Committee on International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE-XXII), Ensenada, Mexico, 11-15 March 2013.

      The Annotated Agenda/ Action Paper will be the main working document for the 22nd Session of the IOC Committee on IODE. It includes (i) the draft introductory text that will be used for the summary report of the Meeting; (ii) (in yellow text boxes) the decisions requested from the Committee; (iii) draft recommendations and resolutions; and (iv) resource requirements. Regarding resource requirements it is noted that in Annex I a summary overview is provided of financial requirements for the inter-sessional period April 2013- March 2015.

    • ARGO requirements for more rapid and easier access to CTD data

      Pouliquen, S.; Diggs, S.; Roemmich, D.; Gould, J.; Desaubies, Y. (UNESCO, 2007)
      Argo is the most visible and innovative new element of the sustained observing system for the open ocean. Since mid-2004 it has become the most abundant source of profile data from the ocean and that abundance will continue to increase as the array grows to its target of 3000 floats that will deliver 100,000 CTD profiles per year by 2007. Paradoxically, the existence of Argo has highlighted the importance of research ship-based CTD observations. Argo floats are expendable, consequently there is no opportunity to do laboratory calibrations to check sensor drift. A method has been devised to estimate sensor drift by making comparisons with nearby (in space and time) CTD profiles collected by research ships and by comparing new and old floats. This method is described in : Wong, A.P.S., Johnson, G.C. Owens, W.B., 2003. Delayed-Mode Calibration of Autonomous CTD Profiling Float Salinity Data by Theta-S Climatology. Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology, 20, 308-318. Böhme, Lars and Uwe Send, 2005: Objective analyses of hydrographic data for referencing profiling float salinities in highly variable environments. Deep-Sea Research II, 52/3-4, 651-664. The estimation of float sensor drift requires a regular supply of ship-board CTD profiles to depths of at least 1000m in water depths of 2000m or more. Unfortunately, most of these data are not easily available to Argo community, and those that are available arrive after unacceptably long delays. IODE & the NODCs are asked to assist in making these data more easily and rapidly available to Argo. Rather schematically, one can distinguish data that are used in delayed mode (the study of ocean processes, surveys to assess low-frequency variability, building up climatology), from those used in real time (or near real time) for assimilation into ocean circulation models for operational purposes. The calibration of Argo profiles falls in both categories: validation as soon as possible after deployment, and delayed mode quality control.

      Pikula, Linda (UNESCOParis, 2011)
      The GEMIM workplan as to ASFA involvement was completed during the intersession. L. Noble through FAO Secretariat to ASFA advised journal publishers connected with ASFA to make use of ASFA Thesauri. Grey Literature input by ODIN's as ASFA partners has been encouraged.
