Chemical, physical, and other data were collected from bottle and CTD casts in the Indian from the MELVILLE from 04 December 1977 to 24 April 1978. Data were collected by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) as part of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration / Geochemical Ocean Study (IDOE/GEOSECS). Physical parameters include depth, temperature, salinity, pH, and pressure. Chemical parameters include concentrations of carbon dioxide, oxygen, phosphate, nitrate, nitrite, and silicate. Analog data are availabe for this accession by contacting NODC user services.

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.
