Abstract

The Coriolis DAC drifting buoys data processing chain decodes, processes, formats and performs quality control on drifters data.

The attached manual describes how to install, configure and use the Coriolis Python decoder used to process Drifting buoys data and metadata.

The main function of the decoder is to format the drifter data (drifter metadata, drifter measurements, drifter technical data) into a unique Drifter NetCDF CF file.

The decoder applies Real Time Quality Control (RTQC) tests on the Drifting buoys data file.

It manages both Argos or Iridium messages.

The drifter decoder is used through the IridiumSbdDrifterDecoder.py or the ArgosDrifterDecoder.py  programs. It generates an JSON report of the processing done and is designed to be used in a Data Assembly Center (DAC) real time flux.
