In late 2004, the Oklahoma Climatological Survey (OCS) began to serve as the prototype central facility for the Modernized Coop Network. As part of this facility, OCS personnel actively archive real-time observations from the New England Coop, as well as perform rigorous quality assurance of the network data. The quality assurance system includes archiving site survey and site installation metadata in an on-line database, maintaining instrument and equipment information, performing both automated and manual quality control of the data, and providing detailed sensor problem reports to Coop personnel. The goal is to provide a research-quality data set that can be trusted by both real-time decision makers and scientists alike.
