Summarize and assess the current status of biogeochemical sensor technology with particular emphasis on float-/glider-readiness (pressure and temperature dependence, long-term stability, calibration accuracy, measurements time constant, etc.).
Develop pre- and post-deployment quality control metrics and procedures for oxygen and other biogeochemical sensors deployed on floats and gliders providing a research-quality synthesis data product.
Collaborate with Argo and other data centers to implement these procedures in their standard routines.
Disseminate procedures widely to ensure rapid adoption in the community. Develop ideas for capacity building in this context.
