Sea surface temperature and salinity data from thermosalinographs collected from multiple platforms world-wide from 1989-07-20 to 2015-03-02 as part of the Global Ocean Surface Underway Data (GOSUD) project (GOSUD v1.6) (NCEI Accession 0001715)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This accession contains GOSUD v1.6 thermosalinographs data submitted to NOAA/NCEI. The data includes information about sea surface temperature and salinity, in netCDF formatted files, obtained with the use of thermosalinographs (TSG) installed in a variety of ships. The datasets provided by the various GOSUD contributors are collected and assembled in the database by Coriolis. The data set constitutes the complete data set assembled by GOSUD with the corresponding flags after the quality control. The measured variables or parameters include conductivity, sea surface salinity, sea surface water temperature (using internal sensor), water temperature (using external sensor, when available), latitude, longitude and time. The originator's data have different temporal resolutions from three minute median filtered values to one hour point values.
