• Welcome to NOCS......Prof Ed Hill, (Director NOCS)


• Discussion session Led by John Gould and Brian King : The role of User Group for the Euro-Argo infrastructure (recommendations on data system, products, evolution of the array) - Themes :

- The Argo data system : is it understood by users, format, data access, documentation, real time and delayed mode

- Quality control : required improvements ?

- New products (trajectory, climatologies, etc): requirements

- Evolution of the array : sampling, biogeochemistry, sea ice


1230 – 1330 : Lunch and Poster viewing


1330 – 1430 : Conclusions from this workshop and Plans for next Euro-Argo Workshop
