Adjustments to FLOATViz data
It is occassionally necessary to correct data observed with Float sensors for obvious problems, such as sensor drift. These corrections are performed by MBARI float data managers, and are assessed based on comparisons with highly accurate deep reference fields generated by multiple linear regression algorithms as described in Carter et al, 2018, Williams et al, 2016, and Bittig et al, 2018. The quality control adjustment (correction) history for each float has been documented by MBARI and can be accessed here. MATLAB software tools developed by MBARI and used in the correction process are freely available on github.
To plot or download Raw or Adjusted data, use the selection box on the left panel of the FloatViz web page.For additional information on specific floats, including any identified issues, please review the SOCCOM float info table or the MBARI float stats table.
