Abstract

Knorr IMET Data Quality Control Report Jennifer Lovell and Shawn R. Smith Research Vessel Surface Meteorological Data Center Center for Ocean Atmospheric Prediction Studies Florida State University March 27, 2001 Report MET 01-04 Version 1.0 2 INTRODUCTION: This report summarizes the quality of surface meteorological data collected by the research vessel Knorr (identifier: KCEJ) during ten cruises completed in 1993 and 1994. The data were provided to the Florida State University Data Assembly Center (DAC) in electronic format by B. Walden (WHOI) and were converted to standard DAC netCDF format. The data were then processed using an automated screening program, which added quality control flags to the data, highlighting potential problems. Finally, the Data Quality Evaluator (DQE) reviewed the data and current flags, whereby flags were added, removed, or modified according to the judgment of the DQE and other DAC personnel. Details of the quality control procedures can be found in Smith et al. (1994). The data quality control report summarizes the flags for the Knorr meteorological data, including those added by both the preprocessor and the DQE. DATA VARIABLES: The Knorr data are expected to include observations averaged once every minute on these cruises. Values for the following variables were collected: Time Latitude Longitude Platform Course Platform Speed Over Ground Atmospheric Pressure Air Temperature Humidity Temperature Sea Temperature Relative Humidity Precipitation Atmospheric Radiation (TIME) (LAT) (LON) (PL_CRS) (PL_SPD) (P) (T) (T2) (TS) (RH) (PRECIP) (RAD) REMOVED DATA: The winds for the 1993 and 1994 Knorr data, wind vane direction (W_VANE), compass direction (W_COMP), platform relative wind direction (PL_WDIR), platform
