SENSORS FOR OCEAN OBSERVATIONS: THE MISSING LINK(S)

Marine sensors are becoming more pervasive, and ocean observing systems more complex. Sooner or later, chances are that you or your colleague will have a hard time using data from one of today's ocean sensors -- the data will be confusing and poorly described, calibrations will be missing, you won't be sure which sensor the data came from, you won't find the data you need, or you won't have the program to reprocess the raw data.

We know how to solve these problems. Some solutions already work; some are in progress; and some are simply ideas. But sensors and systems built today rarely help, and may make things worse. What can be done with sensors to make your data useful and interoperable for as long as possible?

In this presentation we will show examples from many projects, and lay out the missing links in the marine sensor data chain.
