The Ocean Best Practices System (OBPS) was created to improve access to best practices. We are looking for your thoughts on the use of these best practices in ocean observing and also guiding the evolution of the OBPS.
Best practices and are a common approach to further consistency in ocean data and information. The definition for an Ocean Best Practice is – “a methodology that repeatedly produces superior results relative to other methodologies with the same objective; to be fully elevated to a best practice, a promising method will have been adopted and employed by multiple organizations”. Best practices may come in many forms such as “standard operating procedures,” manuals or guides.
The Ocean Best Practices System (OBPS) brings together documentation for technological solutions and community practices.
The IOC International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange (IODE) is now hosting the OBPS repository of best practices. (see http://www.oceanbestpractices.org)
The OBPS Project has been approved by the recent IOC Assembly as a joint IODE-GOOS project and will start implementation soon.
This survey is being done in preparation for the OceanObs19 meeting in September 2019,. The survey should take approximately 10-12 minutes to complete. Due to the ways this survey is being distributed, please excuse multiple requests.

We thank you for your support.
