The Argo-oxygen meeting has been held 25-27 May 2011 at Ifremer in Brest.
The heart of the meeting was devoted to technical discussions on oxygen sensors (Seabird SBE43, Aanderaa optode and other available oxygen sensors) and their use on Argo floats (or gliders). The main question was how people have identified the errors in their oxygen data and the errors inherent in each sensor type, and how they have corrected these errors? To address those questions, there were sessions in which the following issues were discussed: calibration before deployment, static errors, dynamic errors and quality control of the data (both real time and delayed mode).
Besides the technical sessions, there was a session devoted to scientific results derived from oxygen data measured by Argo floats or gliders.
A short report of this meeting is available in the Argonautics 12 newsletter (July 2011) available at http://www.argo.ucsd.edu/newsletter.html
