Publications and Reports
Guides, Websites, and Handbooks for Best Practices in Quantifying Uncertainty
The Ocean Best Practices System (OBPS) is a community-led effort that provides publication, discovery and access to relevant and tested methods, from observation to application. OBPS supports the entire ocean community in sharing methods, developing best practices and capacity development in their use. It includes a repository for best practices, peer-reviewed publications, training, and user support. Check out the OBPS Uncertainty search.
Salinity PiMEP (Pilot-Mission Exploitation Platform) is a “one stop shop” for ocean salinity measurements and a beautiful example of a community effort to estimate measurement uncertainties in a systematic and consistent manner. PiMEP allows users to compare surface salinity measurements from all available satellite and in situ platforms.
