The United States Integrated Ocean Observing System® (U.S. IOOS®) Quality Assurance / Quality Control of Real-Time Oceanographic Data (QARTOD) Project marshaled hundreds of volunteer subject-matter experts to identify tests to evaluate real-time data quality by variable and instrument type. These quality control steps, outlined in QARTOD manuals, are crucial for documenting the reliability of the collected real-time environmental data. QARTOD, which began as an ad hoc effort in 2003, has published thirteen quality control manuals. Specific aspirations for future QARTOD efforts include revising existing manuals, identifying new manuals for development based on the QARTOD community development process, and promoting the documented quality control procedures within the IOOS and broader ocean observing system communities. QARTOD manuals characterize the quality control processes as required, strongly recommended, or suggested for each sensor type. QARTOD manuals can be developed only when.....
