The Global Temperature and Salinity Profile Programme (GTSPP) is a joint program of the International Oceanographic Data and Information Exchange committee (IODE) and the Joint Commission on Oceanography and Marine Meteorology (JCOMM) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC). Tasks in the GTSPP are shared amongst the participating countries including but not limited to Argentina, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, UK, and USA. Scientists and data managers in these countries contribute their time and resources to ensure the continued functioning of the program.
The paper describes a framework for developing and implementing operationally a state-of-the-art data and information portal with capabilities of exploring in-situ data from near real-time data streams and integrating the data streams with historical data. The paper also provides recommendations to ensure the interoperability of data and information systems being developed in different countries.
