Oceanographic data collected during the EX1601 Transit and Mission Patch Test on NOAA Ship OKEANOS EXPLORER in the North Pacific Ocean from 2016-01-20 to 2016-02-07 (NCEI Accession 0145341)

Normal underway operations and mapping patch testing. Bathymetric mapping of either the Murray or Molokai Fracture Zones during the transit to Hawaii was planned, as allowed by equipment shakedown priorities and prevailing sea conditions. CTD casts were requested at strategic locations along the fracture zone. New equipment in need of shakedown testing included a new Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) antenna, a new Keyboard-Video-Monitor (KVM) system, new Doppler speed log, four new EK 60 single beam sonars, two new ADCPs, new digital file storage systems, and a newly installed Underway CTD.

Supplemental Information
The NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research sponsored the collection of these data.

EX1601 Transit and Mission Patch Test produced the following data: Ship Navigation; Ship Sensor Raw Data (SCS Data - Air Temp, Barometer, Doppler Depth, Event Data, Met, Relative Humidity, SAMOS, Sound Velocity, Thermosalinograph, Water Temperature, Wind Direction, Wind Speed) (Profile Data - asvp, CTD, XBT); ADCP Data; Multibeam and Singlebeam Bathymetric Data.

Other NOAA offices hold the data that NODC has not archived under this Accession.

In this accession, NCEI has archived multiple versions of these data. The latest (and best) version of these data has the largest version number.
Purpose This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.
