PMEL-BMKG Data Quality Control Training Workshop

PMEL, Seattle, WA

February 10 - 14, 2020

Eight BMKG staff were invited by PMEL to attend a training workshop on data quality control (QC) during February 10 - 14, 2020 in PMEL, Seattle, WA. Seven of them received financial support from PMEL to cover their travel and lodging expenses.

The objective of the workshop is to introduce to the BMKG staff the best practice of data QC adapted by PMEL that would enable BMKG to QC their observational data before these data are used in scientific research by BMKG staff and released for public use.

The workshop covered issues related to QC of hourly surface meteorological data (temperature, humidity, wind, pressure), rain gauge data, CTD data, and ADCP data. Discussions also extended to scientific analysis using these and other data. The workshop included lectures, discussions, and hands-on exercises.
