Current components data from current meters from the NE Pacific (limit-180) from 1954-06-01 to 1970-06-01 (NODC Accession 7601441)

Current components data were collected from current meters in the NE Pacific (limit-180). Data were collected by the Japanese Hydrographic Office from 01 June 1954 to 01 June 1970. Parameters include East/West velocity components (U) and North/South velocity components (V). Data are in the Japanese Oceanographic Data Center (JODC) Surfase Current Data Set - Data Format. Paragraph below was present prior to current edit.

Geomagnetic Electrokinetograph (GEK) data was submitted by the Japanese Oceanographic Data Center. The data were collected by multiple ships in the Northeast Pacific. The documentation contains a detailed record format and a list of Japanese agencies responsible for the data collection. A list of Japanese vessels and their ship codes was also included. The data submitted on magnetic tape has been converted into current NODC storage media format.

Supplemental Information
Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
