SOCIB Data Center has developed a pilot service for glider data processing from external users. The service is accessible through a web interface and relies on the SOCIB Glider toolbox. The SOCIB glider toolbox (https://github.com/socib/glider_toolbox) has proven to be a reliable and efficient software to process glider data. It produces international standards such as EGO and it will soon incorporate automatic QC of the data.
SOCIB is now exploring the possibilities of providing this service operationally to allow organizations worldwide to process data by using SOCIB infrastructure. This service proofed to be a need for the glider data management community during the last EuroGOOS Glider Data Management Meeting that was held in Genova (Italy) last September 2018.
