Thermosalinograph data of the Hawaii Ocean Time-series (HOT) program in the North Pacific 100 Miles North of Oahu, Hawaii for Cruises HOT219-227 during 2010 (NODC Accession 0087988)

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.

Various other stations are made intermittently in support of similar research objectives or mooring deployments.

HOT thermosalinograph data are recorded every 10 seconds from water collected by a continuous seawater system aboard each vessel from a depth of about 3 meters.

This NODC Accession contains thermosalinograph data for HOT cruises 219-227 during 2010. CTD and Niskin bottle data from the same cruises are available in separate Accessions.

Cruise 218 was a short cruise due to equipment problems and only has one CTD cast and no thermosalinograph data.

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.
