#oceans #data #gliders

Since the last international data management meeting in Genoa 5 years ago, the glider community in Europe has been growing steadily and has organised itself to provide, in a harmonised way, high quality glider data sets in real time to the oceanographic community at large. As a result, the number of datasets available to the European GDAC has increased significantly.

In the framework of the GROOM II project, the EuroSea and EuroGOOS Glider Task Team, and based on the results of the “OceanGliders Best Practices” workshop held in May 2021, this joint workshop is organised to further improve the management of glider data and metadata in Europe. This workshop is intended to be an important and collaborative step in designing a roadmap for glider data management in Europe.

This workshop will be in two parts:

  • 20-24 June: Week 1 focuses on the technical problems of real-time glider data management encountered by the European community.
  • 4-8 July: Week 2 focuses on the long-term evolution of glider data management.

Practical informations

  • From 20 to 24 June and from 4 to 8 July 2022
