Microsoft Word - Argentina Oca Balda, El Austral, Dr. Eduardo L. Holmberg, and Puerto Deseado Bridge Data Quality Control Report Jennifer Lovell and Shawn R. Smith World Ocean Circulation Experiment WOCE Surface Meteorological Data Analysis Center Center for Ocean Atmospheric Prediction Studies Florida State University June 28, 2001 Report WOCEMET 01-11 Version 1.0 2 INTRODUCTION This report summarizes the quality of surface meteorological data collected by four Argentine research vessels the Oca Balda (identifier: LW4344), El Austral (identifier: LW5931), Dr. Eduardo L. Holmberg (identifier: LW4343), and the Puerto Deseado (identifier: LOPD) during eight cruises completed in 1991-1996. The data provided to the Florida State University Data Assembly Center (DAC) by M. Charo (Hidro- Argentina) included manually observed data. These data were converted by the DAC to our standard netCDF format (see Appendex). 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 Argentine research vessels’ meteorological data, including those added by the WOCEMET preprocessor and the DQE. DATA VARIABLES The Argentine research vessels’ data includes observations taken in hourly intervals or as provided by the specific ship. Values for the following variables were collected: Time Latitude Longitude Earth Relative Wind Direction Earth Relative Wind Speed Atmospheric Pressure Air Temperature Wet Bulb Temperature** Sea Temperature* Relative Humidity** (TIME) (LAT) (LON) (DIR) (SPD) (P) (T) **(TW) *(TS) **(RH) *Sea temperature (TS) was recorded only on the
