These DACs apply a set of automatic quality tests (RTQC) to the data, and quality flags are assigned accordingly.  In the delayed-mode process (DMQC), data are subjected to visual examination and are re-flagged where necessary.  For the float data affected by sensor drift, statistical tools and climatological comparisons are used to adjust the data for sensor drift when needed.  For each float that has been processed in delayed-mode, the OWC method (Owens and Wong, 2009; Cabanes et al., 2016)  is run with four different sets of spatial and temporal decorrelation scales and the latest available reference dataset.  If the salinity adjustments obtained from the four runs all differ significantly from the existing adjustment,  then the salinity data from the float are re-examined and a new adjustment is suggested if necessary.  The usual practice is to examine the profiles in delayed-mode initially about 12 months after they are collected,  and then revisit several times as more data from the floats are obtained (see details in Wong et al., 2020).";

Argo data from Gulf of Mexico (GOM) LC1 (9 floats) and LC2 (12 floats) were delayed mode quality controlled and submitted to Global Data Assembly Centers (GDACs) in May 2020.   All available profiles are planned to be revisited and evaluated in early 2021.

Using tabledap to Request Data and Graphs from Tabular Datasets

tabledap lets you request a data subset, a graph, or a map from a tabular dataset (for example, buoy data), via a specially formed URL. tabledap uses the OPeNDAP (external link) Data Access Protocol (DAP) (external link) and its selection constraints (external link).

The URL specifies what you want: the dataset, a description of the graph or the subset of the data, and the file type for the response.

Tabledap request URLs must be in the form
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/datasetID.fileType{?query}
For example,
https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/tabledap/pmelTaoDySst.htmlTable?longitude,latitude,time,station,wmo_platform_code,T_25&time>=2015-05-23T12:00:00Z&time<=2015-05-31T12:00:00Z
Thus, the query is often a comma-separated list of desired variable names, followed by a collection of constraints (e.g., variable<value), each preceded by '&' (which is interpreted as "AND").

For details, see the tabledap Documentation.
