Temperature profile data collected using XBT and other instruments from KNORR and other platforms in Northeast Atlantic Ocean from 1983-02-03 to 1984-10-22 (NODC Accession 8600146)

Temperature profile data were collected using XBT, BT, and AXBT casts from the KNORR and other platforms in the Northeast Atlantic Ocean. Data were collected from 03 February 1983 to 22 October 1984 by Lamont - Doherty Earth Observatory with support from the Seasonal Response of the Equatorial Atlantic Experiment / Français Ocean Et Climat Dans L'Atlantique Equatorial (SEQUAL/FOCAL) project.

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.
