1st European Argo Delayed-Mode QC Workshop

Dates: 17 and 18 April 2018

Location: Ifremer Institute, Brest, France (Salon de l’Océan)

Conveners: Euro-Argo ERIC Office; B. King (NERC/NOC); B. Klein (BSH); G. Maze (Ifremer); C. Coatanoan (Ifremer); C. Cabanes (Ifremer); J. Buck (BODC); G. Notarstefano (OGS), B. Owens (WHOI)

This workshop has been organised in the frame of the MOCCA (EASME/EMFF/2015/ project within WP4 Data Management.


DMQC processing is presently carried on by a limited number of teams and there is a willingness from some countries to develop the DMQC understanding, and perhaps DMQC capabilities for their own floats.

The main objectives of the workshop are therefore:

  • To bring all EU countries towards the same level of knowledge,
  • To make sure everybody understands the data system,
  • To start sharing DMQC procedures/tools/methods within EU. Future workshops would be organised with this community.

The workshop is mainly dedicated to people who have never been to any DMQC workshops. For an efficient and fruitful workshop, the audience will be limited to maximum 20/25 persons.


The workshop will be held on two days. The first day will provide general information and demonstrations of the DMQC steps. The second day will be more flexible, with practical work from the attendees, discussions on specific subjects and answers to attendees’ enquiries.
