The aggregated datasets are regional ODV collections of all temperature and salinity measurements contained within the SeaDataNet infrastructure covering all the European sea basins (Arctic Sea, Baltic Sea, Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea, North Sea, and North Atlantic Ocean).
Two versions have been published during the SeaDataNet 2 project and one version during the SeaDataCloud project. They represent a snapshot of the SeaDataNet database content at three different times:
•SeaDataNet V1.1 January 2014
•SeaDataNet V2 March 2015
•SeaDataCloud V1 November 2017
Each of them is the result of the Quality Assurance Strategy (QAS) implemented during the SeaDataNet2 Project that contributed to highly improve the quality of temperature and salinity data. The QAS is made by four main phases:
•data harvesting from the central CDI
•file and parameter aggregation
•quality check analysis at regional level
•analysis and correction of data anomalies
The aggregated datasets have been prepared and quality checked using ODV software.
