Seawater temperature and salinity observed from the CORC3 and CORC4 moorings in the southern California Current (NE Pacific) from 2012 to present (NCEI Accession 0163206)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This archive accession contains temperature and salinity observations from instruments on the CORC3 and CORC4 moorings in the southern California Current (2012 to present), part of the CORC project (Consortium on the Ocean's Role in Climate) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, under a grant from NOAA. The instruments were clamped along the mooring wire and carried sensors for conductivity, temperature, and some also pressure (CTD). These data are included in this archive package, along with interpolated pressures for instruments without such sensors and derived salinity. Data have undergone post- calibration and quality control, and quality flags are included. The original data submission contains one data file per deployment. Data files are in NetCDF.

Supplemental Information
Submission Package ID: 6EWA9X and HLD026.
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 The primary purpose of these observations is to derive dynamic height from the temperature and salinity data, and thereby geostrophic currents.
