Short-course: quality control and management of carbonate chemistry data for studies of ocean natural variability and long-term ocean acidification monitoring programs in Latin America

The Latin American Ocean Acidification Network (LAOCA), with co-sponsorship from the Millennium Institute of Oceanography (IMO), the Coastal Socio-Ecological Millennium Institute (SECOS), the Anillo Project ENSO-Climate Change and the Carbon cycle in the Pacific South East (ECLIPSE), is coordinating and hosting a Short Workshop for Latin America and other developing countries on Carbonate Chemistry data QC and management from November 9 to 11 2022.

This -free of charge- workshop aim giving some background information and training for a group of scientists from Latin America, on data quality control (QC) procedures that estimate the consistency of the data across ocean acidification observing systems, including pH and pCO2 data from oceanographic buoys and ship-based observations, as well, as principles on data management of carbonate chemistry data.
