New Tools for OOI Surface Profiler Data Delivery and Visualization
Over the last year, we have developed tools for data download and visualization of CSPP data. These tools provide a graphical interface to the OOI Data Portal machine-to-machine (M2M) interface. While we’ve used these tools for quality assessment and control of CSPP data, they also offer users easy access to this unique data set. Preliminary analysis of instrument and engineering datasets shows the occurrence of small spatial and temporal transient hypoxia and upwelling events. Real-time adjustments in profiler sampling could offer high-resolution collection on event scales without impact to the OOI’s overarching science goals. Adaptation of sampling and platform configuration through user request may add to research that focuses on small temporal and vertical scales and increase the overall number of applications and users of profiler data.
We will discuss some identifiable events, adaptive sampling practices performed at the observatory level, and methods for distributing archived and near real-time data to end users.
