White paper on dissolved oxygen measurements: scientific needs and sensors accuracy

The objective here is to review the practical accuracy and the precision of the existing oxygen sensors used in oceanography. The idea is to review all oxygen sensors mounted on fixed and lagrangian platforms (mooring, CTD profiler, glider, ARGO floats) used on coastal observatories. This report synthetizes the past experiences and recommendations for a better use of oxygen sensors in order to improve the quality of the oxygen data for scientific exploitations.
