SAMOS project underway oceanographic and quality-controlled meteorological data collected aboard the PISCES from 2016-10-04 to 2016-10-31 (NCEI Accession 0157513)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The data logging system on the PISCES recorded underway oceanographic and meteorological data from various instruments while cruising in the North Atlantic Ocean from 2016-10-04 to 2016-10-31. During this period, as part of the Shipboard Automated Meteorological and Oceanographic System (SAMOS) project, the data logging system sent the data daily via e-mail to Florida State University (FSU), where the Center for Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction Studies (COAPS) quality-controlled (QCed) the meteorological data. COAPS submitted four versions of the data to the National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI): the original data e-mailed by the data logging system, first-level (automatically and merged) QCed data, and second-level (visually) QCed data. NODC Accession 0157513 contains all these data.
