Water temperature data from XBT taken from the research vessel Italica in the Southern Ocean and Southwest Pacific Ocean from 1994-11-03 to 1995-01-01 (NCEI Accession 0170608)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Vertical temperature profiles were taken from November 3rd 1994 to January 1st 1995 from the research vessel Italica during an oceanographic cruise between New Zealand and the Ross Sea in the framework of the Climatic Longterm Interaction for the Mass balance in Antarctica (CLIMA) project of the Italian National Antarctic Research Programme (PNRA). Sippican T7 and T5 Expendable Bathythermograph (XBT) with a vertical resolution of 65 cm and a maximum nominal depth of 760 m and 1830 m respectively were used. Each transect was completed during 5/7 days to provide a synoptic picture of the thermal structure of the upper Southern Ocean. A regular 15 nm spatial sampling rate was adopted across the frontal regions of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. All temperature profiles are quality controlled for consistency between adjacent profiles and through spike editing. Data are in TXT format.
