As systems developers build the tools and methods for transport and discovery of marine data, we must carefully consider what information must accompany these data and how it is transported in order to enable adequate assessment and understanding in a machine-to-machine global exchange. Providing a common framework to communicate the history of a sensor, data processing and processing results can create a shared understanding which will build a solid foundation for the development of a trusted

In this paper, we will present an oceanographic wave height offering, using the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc (OGC) Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) framework, which documents not only the sensor characteristics, but also the processing steps and an assessment of the data quality based on recommended quality control tests.
