									 Update on Salinity Data
Workshop and OpenIOOS
  Pushing for “Interoperability”

        NOAA Coastal Services Center

 Quality Assurance of Real Time Oceanographic
               Data (QARTOD) III
      Scripps Institution of Oceanography
              November 2-4, 2005
    Salinity Data Best Practices
             Workshop
• Concept grew directly out of
  QARTOD II
• Focused specifically on one IOOS
  core variable
• Data quality, metadata, and transport
   Salinity Data Best Practices
            Workshop
• Small group with dissemination to
  wider audience for feedback
• Process as important as the
  immediate results
• Should be a “portable” process for
  others to implement
    Salinity Data Best Practices
             Workshop
• Held in Charleston, SC during first
  week of August
• 18 attendees, including regional
  partners (USF, USC, UM, OHSU,
  GoMOOS) and NOAA (NDBC, CO-
  OPS, NCDDC, CSC)
          Salinity Data Best Practices
                    Workshop
Process
    • Small group, 3 topical areas, 1 room
    • Resulted in some confusion and too
      much “educating” across topical areas
    • Suggest:
          –   Stick with small group
          –   Specifically defined outcome
          –   Breakout rooms for each topical area
          –   Reconvene in plenary to share
        Salinity Data Best Practices
                 Workshop
Summary of Workshop Results
    • Data quality discussion produced
      required and recommended criteria
      tests and agreement on flags
    • Metadata discussion produced required
      and recommended elements list
    • Transport discussions produced
      agreement to develop a “light” SOAP
      XML schema (working group in
      progress on this task)
         Salinity Data Best Practices
                  Workshop
Next Steps
     • Share results with broad IOOS
       community
     • “Submit” to DMAC – push DMAC to
       develop a plan for comment, feedback,
       distribution, recommendation, etc…
     • Improve on process
     • Choose another variable and do it again
         IOOS Interoperability
            Demonstration
A collaborative, multi-institutional demonstration of data
  integration and interoperability among coastal ocean
 observing systems within and across regions and with
                 the national backbone.


• Demonstrates community cooperation
• Advances the goal of data interoperability
• Provides demonstration products to
  showcase the value of an IOOS.

Evolution – 2004 Hurricane
         Season
             Additional variables
             and hurricane tracks:
               • Winds
               • Wave height,
                 period, direction
               • Water level
               • River stage
               • Satellite imagery
            COTS/ONR/RA Workshop
                            November 2004
  Goal - Enhance coordination, especially data integration,
    among COTS/ONR partners and other collaborators
     Key Outcomes
          – Brought COTS, ONR, and RA partners together to discuss
            national issues in ocean observing and approaches to improve
            coordination and integration.
          – Participants agreed to work on a data integration
            demonstration – among coastal observing systems within and
            across regions and with federal backbone

     Potential products discussed
          – Weather/ocean channel segment
          – National display portal (interoperability demo I + additional
            variables)
          – Regional event-based products

       Future for OpenIOOS
• Build a better relationship with DMAC
• Improve community involvement
• Add more regional demonstrations
• Add more data and data providers to the
  National map
• Link Testbed activities to standards
  development processes
• Undergo external evaluation for setting the
  future direction of OpenIOOS
