Definition of Rank

  • Rank 1 is a one-dimensional parameter
  • Rank 2 is a two-dimensional parameter
  • Rank 0 is a one-dimensional parameter describing the second dimension of a two-dimensional parameter (e.g. bin depths for moored ADCP data)

Problem Reports

No Problem Report Found in the Database

Orkney Passage mooring OP2 moored CTD Data Quality Report

The following data quality issues were identified during screening:

  • Series 1223219- The pressure channel exhibits anomalous data from 26 February 2007 08:07:29 hours onwards. The whole series was flagged M as the data are very variable and it wasn't clear which values were real and which ones were anomalous
  • Series 1223220, 1223232 and 1223300- There are several periods where pressure exhibits amplitudes of approximately 100 dbar and others with virtually no fluctuation. No flags were applied
  • Series 1223293- Pressure channel exhibits several issues and anomalous data throughout the deployment period. M flags were applied to all cycles with pressure below 3000 m, as according to the originator, the instrument should have been deployed at approximately 2736 m deep
  • Series 1223312- Pressure channel exhibits anomalous behaviour towards the end of the series. M flags were applied from 27 April 2009 11:14:45 hours to the end of the series
  • Series 1223324- The same behaviour was identified as above. Cycles from 27 April 2009 11:29:45 hours to the end of the series were flagged M

Narrative Documents

SeaBird SBE 39 Temperature Recorder

The SBE 39 is a high-accuracy temperature recorder (pressure optional) with internal battery and non-volatile memory for deployment at depths up to 10500 meters. The SBE 39 is intended for moorings or other long-term, fixed-site applications, as well as shorter-term deployments on nets, towed vehicles or ROVs. Calibration coefficients stored in EEPROM allow the SBE 39 to transmit data in engineering units. The SBE 39's thermistor has a long history of exceptional accuracy and stability (typical drift is less than 0.002°C per year). The SBE 39 communicates directly with a computer via a standard RA-232 interface.

  Temperature (°C) Pressure (optional)
Measurement Range -5 to +35 0 to full scale range: 20 / 100 / 350 / 1000 / 2000 / 3500 / 7000 metres

Data Processing Notes

Data submitted to BODC were transferred using standardised procedures and originator's parameters were matched to the BODC parameter vocabulary. Unit conversions were applied when originator's units did not match the ones specified on the dictionary.

Once data were transferred, several checks were performed on the file's header and data cycles. These include:

  • Irregularities such as unfeasible values
  • Inconsistencies between related information, namely depths of meter and sea bed (when available), times for mooring deployment and for start/end of data series, length of record or number of data cycles, cycle interval, clock error, parameters stated as measured and the parameters actually present in the data cycles
  • Originator's comments on instruments/mooring performance
  • Data quality

Data were inspected visually for anomalous values, spikes, jumps, effects of mooring "knock-down" and quality flags applied where appropriate. The term 'knock-down' refers to the situation when the 'drag' exerted on a mooring at high current speeds may cause instruments to tilt beyond the angle at which they are intended to operate. At this point the efficiency of the current sensors to accurately record the flow is reduced.

Inconsistencies between the characteristics of the data set and those of its neighbours are sought, and where necessary, documented. This covers inconsistencies in the following:

  • Maximum and minimum values of parameters (spikes excluded)
  • The orientation and symmetry of the current vector scatter plot
  • The direction of rotation of the current vectors
  • The approximate amplitude and periodicity of the tidal currents
  • The occurrence of meteorological events
  • The presence of water masses captured by similar instruments

Originator's Data processing

Sampling strategy

Sampling was carried out as part of the BAS LTMS (British Antarctic Survey Long Term Monitoring and Survey) until 2016. From 2016 onwards the moorings are split between 'The Ocean Regulation of Climate by Heat and Carbon Sequestration and Transports (ORCHESTRA)' project and 'Dynamics of the Orkney Passage Outflow (DynOPO)' project.

The projects involve the deployment of moorings CI1, CI2, OP1, OP2, OP3, OP4, OP5, OP6 and OP7 in the Southern Ocean, situated north of Coronation Island and the Orkney Passage in the Weddell and Scotia Sea.

Moorings CI1 and CI2 were deployed from 2005 to 2007 and moorings OP1, OP2, OP3, OP4, OP5 and OP6 have been continuously maintained since 2007 with the addition of OP7 in 2015.

SBE 37 and SBE39 instruments were deployed on the moorings. Data have been collected at variable intervals: 5 minutes interval on the Coronation Island moorings, 7.5 minute interval on the instruments deployed on OP2 and OP3 in 2007 and 15 minute intervals since then. Gaps in the series may be caused by either instruments not being recovered, or data not being collected due to instrument malfunction.

Data processing

Little information is known with regards to the exact details of the calibrations carried out on the mooring data. Data processing, visualisation and calibration were carried out through the use of scripts for Matlab version R2014b produced and ran by the originator.

An offset has been applied some of the channels. The values for each deployment/instrument/channel combination are shown in the table below:

Several instruments deployed in the 2013/15 period show evidence of knock-down but the data colleaction seems to be unnafected. According to the originator some of the moorings were deployed with insufficient buyoancy which caused the knockdowns. These instances are especially visible on moorings OP1 and OP2, Series Reference number 1840205, 1840229, 1840254, 1840266 and 1840278

Several instruments deployed in the 2015/17 period did not have a pressure sensor and used inferred pressure calculated from the closest neigbhouring pressure sensor. This includes five SBE39 instruments (s/n 4413, 4716, 4713, 4418 and 4409) and one SBE37 instrument (s/n 8267).

General Data Screening carried out by BODC

BODC screen both the series header qualifying information and the parameter values in the data cycles themselves.

Header information is inspected for:

  • Irregularities such as unfeasible values
  • Inconsistencies between related information, for example:
    • Times for instrument deployment and for start/end of data series
    • Length of record and the number of data cycles/cycle interval
    • Parameters expected and the parameters actually present in the data cycles
  • Originator's comments on meter/mooring performance and data quality

Documents are written by BODC highlighting irregularities which cannot be resolved.

Data cycles are inspected using time or depth series plots of all parameters. Currents are additionally inspected using vector scatter plots and time series plots of North and East velocity components. These presentations undergo intrinsic and extrinsic screening to detect infeasible values within the data cycles themselves and inconsistencies as seen when comparing characteristics of adjacent data sets displaced with respect to depth, position or time. Values suspected of being of non-oceanographic origin may be tagged with the BODC flag denoting suspect value; the data values will not be altered.

The following types of irregularity, each relying on visual detection in the plot, are amongst those which may be flagged as suspect:

  • Spurious data at the start or end of the record.
  • Obvious spikes occurring in periods free from meteorological disturbance.
  • A sequence of constant values in consecutive data cycles.

If a large percentage of the data is affected by irregularities then a Problem Report will be written rather than flagging the individual suspect values. Problem Reports are also used to highlight irregularities seen in the graphical data presentations.

Inconsistencies between the characteristics of the data set and those of its neighbours are sought and, where necessary, documented. This covers inconsistencies such as the following:

  • Maximum and minimum values of parameters (spikes excluded).
  • The occurrence of meteorological events.

This intrinsic and extrinsic screening of the parameter values seeks to confirm the qualifying information and the source laboratory's comments on the series. In screening and collating information, every care is taken to ensure that errors of BODC making are not introduced.
