Abstract

The Coriolis Argo floats data processing chain decodes, processes, formats and performs quality control on floats data.

The attached manual describes how to install, configure and use the Coriolis Matlab decoder used to process Argo floats data.


  • The main function of the decoder is to format the float data (float metadata, float measurements, float technical data) into four Argo NetCDF CF files.

  • The decoder applies Real Time Quality Control (RTQC) tests on Argo profile and trajectory files

The floats decoder is used through the decode_provor_2_nc, decode_apex_2_nc and decode_nova_2_nc Matlab programs.

The decode_argo_2_nc_rt Matlab program additionally generates an XML report of the processing done and is designed to be used in a Data Assembly Center (DAC) real time flux.

The current version of the decoder is stored in the global variable wg_decArgo_decoderVersion set in the init_default_values.m file.

The current version of the profile RTQC is stored in the global variable g_decArgo_addRtqcToProfileVersion set in the add_rtqc_to_profile_file.m file.

The current version of the trajectory RTQC is stored in the global variable g_decArgo_addRtqcToTrajVersion set in the add_rtqc_to_trajectory_file.m file.
