CTD data of the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) program in the North Pacific 100 Miles North of Oahu, Hawaii for Cruises HOT199-206 during 2008 (NODC Accession 0059842)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The HOT program makes repeated observations of the physics, biology and chemistry at a site approximately 100 km north of Oahu, Hawaii. Two stations are visited about once a month: Kahe Point (Station 1: 21.34N, 158.27W) and Station ALOHA (Station 2: 22.75N, 158W). Various other stations are made intermittently in support of similar research objectives or mooring deployments.

HOT CTD data are collected using a SeaBird CTD 9-11 Plus with dual sensors at the maximum sampling rate of 24 samples per second (24 Hz). They are screened for errors and processed to 2-dbar averages. Starting in 2006, the percent transmission field was replaced with a nitrate in the dataset.

In separate NODC Accessions, Niskin bottle and thermosalinograph data from these same cruises are available.

Supplemental Information
Niskin bottle data for these 2008 HOT cruises are located in NODC accession 0059936.
Thermosalinograph data for these 2998 HOT cruises is available in NODC accession 0059943.
Purpose The objective of the physical component of HOT is to describe and understand the ocean climate and variability at a deep-water site in the North Pacific subtropical gyre near Hawaii. This requires a long time series of physical oceanographic variables, including water mass properties and currents,supporting and complementing the objectives of the biogeochemical component of HOT.

  • Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) was initiated and funded through grants from the National Science Foundation under the auspices of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) and the World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE). Thefield phase of these programs has ended, but support from the Ocean Sciences Division of NSF has enabled continuation of our basic HOT measurement program. The physical oceanographic component contributes to the objectives of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) Programme by providing information on interannual to decadal variability of the North Pacific Ocean.The US CLIVAR Office funded the physical oceanographic data during2008.
