For those not familiar with our QC Summit the aim is for scientific, technical and operational staff – that is those actively involved in collecting and quality controlling the data – to get together to discuss the issues, swap methods and network to produce better data. This year’s Summit will include presentations on ADCP operations in the south-west W.A sub facility, a tour of CSIRO’s Calibration facility, a Bio-optics workshop and profiling CTDs, a talk on the QC of water quality data from the Spirit of Tasmania, an AIMS deployment database presentation and update of the Matlab toolbox and a capital replacement gear workshop.

We are excited to have speakers and attendees from various platforms across Australia, including CSIRO, the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS), the University of Tasmania, the University of NSW, the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) and the  Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA).
