Abstract:
The task of Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP) is to create a complete data and information base of ocean temperature and salinity data captured both in real-time and submitted in delayed mode. The goal is to construct a database of both the highest quality and the most complete salinity and temperature data available. Both real-time data transmitted over the Global Telecommunications System (GTS), and delayed-mode data received by the NODC are acquired and incorporated into a continuously managed database. Countries contributing to the project are Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, and the United States. Canada's Marine Environmental Data Service (MEDS) leads the project, and has the operational responsibility to gather and process the real-time data from the GTS. The quality control procedures used in GTSPP were developed by MEDS. NODC maintains the global database by adding the real-time data supplied by MEDS. NODC also adds delayed-mode data after performing the same data quality tests as MEDS. In addition to MEDS and NODC, three science centers participate in the project by independently evaluating the delayed-mode data sets for the Indian, Pacific, and Atlantic Oceans. Australia's Commonwealth Scientific, Industrial and Research Organization (CSIRO), the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO), and NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic & Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) perform this function as Data Assembly Centers for the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE, which GTSPP supports.
