This manual describes the tests required to ensure the quality control (QC) of real-time data collected by sensors attached to profiling gliders. Profiling gliders are self-propelled (buoyancy driven), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) that are deployed for days-to-months and profile the water column collecting environmental data. The Constraints and Applications section describes the most frequently used gliders, and has a partial list of the organizations that provide data to the U.S. IOOS Glider Data Assembly Center (DAC). The Quality Control section provides details about how the tests described in U.S. IOOS (2015) can be implemented. Specifically, the tests in section 3.3.2 of that manual, Applications of QC Tests to Mobile Temperature/Salinity Sensors, are used as the starting point for this QC manual for real-time data collected from glider platforms. The Summary and References sections provide an overview of the tests and full citations of references used in development of .....
