Overview

The IODE maintains a global network of National Oceanographic Data Centres (NODC) and Associate Data Units (ADU) responsible for the collection, quality control, archive and online publication of many millions of ocean observations. The concept of quality management has become increasingly significant for these centres to meet national and international competency standards for delivery of data products and services. The IODE Quality Management Framework encourages NODCs and ADUs to implement a quality management system which will lead to the accreditation.

Objectives

This training workshop provides an introduction for NODCs and ADUs involved in the development, implementation and management of a Quality Management System which will assist in the adoption of comprehensive management practices and increased confidence in the quality of their data, products and services. The objectives are to:

  • Introduce the IODE Quality Management Framework
  • Introduce the ISO 9000 series of standards
  • Provide a description of a Quality Management System
  • Describe the importance of quality management for oceanographic data 
  • Describe the accreditation process for NODCs and ADUs

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, learners should be able to:

  • Understand the fundamental requirements of the ISO 9001:2015 international standard
  • Identify situations and processes within their own organisations to be included in the quality management system
  • Understand the requirements of the IODE accreditation process

Assessment

This is a practical workshop. The participants will work in teams to complete exercises on each topic to reinforce learning and understanding of the requirements for a quality management system and the IODE accreditation for NODCs and ADUs.

Descrição geral
O curso providencia uma introdução abrangente a gestão de dados oceanográficos. Os participantes irão aprender e praticar métodos de manuseamento de dados oceanográficos usando banco e formato de dados comuns, cobrindo uma variedade de ambientes oceânicos, desde o mar-alto, plataforma costeira até aos estuários. Serão usados os programas “Ocean Data View” e Matlab para aceder, processar, analisar e interpretar os dados. Espera-se que os participantes possam desenvolver projetos individuais a partir de dados oceanográficos de uma região oceânica do seu interesse. Para o efeito os participantes são encorajados a trazerem os seus dados para a formação. Os projetos individuais serão apresentados pelos participantes numa sessão a ter lugar no último dia de formação.

This course is designed to give guidance on bringing together measurements from disparate field studies and projects to preserve the data for future use and easy dissemination to researchers and the public.   There are worldwide subsurface ocean observing systems such as the Argo project of autonomous profiling floats and the Ship of Opportunity Program which facilitates the deployment of Expendable Bathythermographs (XBTs) along merchant shipping lines.  But many oceanographic field studies are more localized, from a mooring at a single coastal site to fisheries research cruises within a country’s coastal waters to trans basin lines such as the long running time series at 24®N in the Atlantic Ocean used to monitor the Atlantic Overturning Circulation.  Locally, nationally, regionally, and globally, an important task is to bring together these measurements in their different forms, with different crucial metadata, from different instrumentation, from different field projects so the data can be used to understand ocean and climate beyond the original scope of the various projects.  The first day of the course will be concerned with the mechanics and data base skills necessary to bring together data at levels beyond a single cruise or mooring and serve them to the researchers and the public In a way that can be easily utilized, with sufficient information for a researcher 50 years in the future to still understand.

The workshop includes classroom training as well as a hands-on experience on-board RV Mtafiti covering all aspects on how to operate and plan a scientific cruise, demonstrations of the use and maintenance of marine sampling equipment, oceanographic (biological, chemical and physical data) sampling applied to the local demands, data collection and data management.

The ambition of the workshop is to:

create a critical pool of staff in the WIO-region (and beyond) with the capacity to effectively undertake oceanographic research using RV Mtafiti and to act as scientific campaign leaders for their scientific crew during research cruises;
ensure the cost-effective use of ship time and guarantee the excellence and quality of data as well as samples collected during surveys and therefore maximize the benefits to be gained from cruises undertaken using RV Mtafiti;
create awareness of the availability of RV Mtafiti for regional research campaigns and promote the deployment of RV Mtafiti for joint research and education projects.
The workshop is organised in collaboration with the IOC Project Office for IODE (link is external) (Oostende, Belgium) and the UNESCO/IOC Sub-Commission for Africa and the Adjacent Island States (link is external) (IOC Africa in Nairobi, Kenya) and contributes to the Second International Indian Ocean Expedition (link is external) (IIOE2) (2015-2020).

Classroom courses and onboard training will be made available online through the OCeanTeacher Global Academy (link is external) Platform.

The trainers are Andre Cattrijsse, Francisco Hernandez, Klaas Deneudt and Harrison Ong’anda. Guest speakers are Mika Odido, Renison Ruwa and Enock Wakwabi . They will share their expertise and experiences gained over the years deploying RV Mtafiti (formerly RV Zeeleeuw) and RV Simon Stevin in the North Sea and their expertise and knowledge on data management.
