Water temperature, ocean currents, and other parameters collected from moorings in the Ross Sea from 1998-02-12 to 2011-11-12 (NCEI Accession 0164025)

browse graphicPreview graphic
This data set consists of physical parameters of sea water (temperature, salinity, current speed and direction) measured at specific depths on a mooring in the Terra Nova Bay polynya close to the coast at about 130 m water depth. The data have been collected in the framework of the Italian marine observatory in the Ross Sea established since 1994 by the P.N.R.A.(National Research Program in Antarctica). Data files were received in Matlab data format, which NCEI has exported into netCDF. Both formats are available.
