This document does NOT address the issue of chlorophyll-a quality control (either real-time or delayed mode). As a preliminary step towards that goal, this document seeks to ensure that all countries deploying floats equipped with chlorophyll-a sensors document the data and metadata related to these floats properly. We produced this document in response to action item 3 from the first Bio-Argo Data Management meeting in Hyderabad (November 12-13, 2012). If the recommendations contained herein are followed, we will end up with a more uniform set of chlorophyll-a data within the Bio-Argo data system, allowing users to begin analyzing not only their own chlorophyll-a data, but also those of others, in the true spirit of Argo data sharing......
