Hydrographic and CTD data from various platforms from the North Pacific Ocean from 1958-07-01 to 1983-03-08 (NODC Accession 9000018)

This dataset contains Oregon State University Newport Line CTD data, and BT and Station Data provided by the California Department of Fish and Game. These data were submitted by Compass Systems, Inc. (CSI).

The Oregon State University Newport Line CTD data includes 10 files containing 1975 Oregon coast data, 4 files containing CUE-I data and 9 files containing 1972 CUE-II data. These data are in Oregon State University format. There are no platform codes for some of the data. Also included in the tape is Ocean data from 1959 to 1970 (L130). This is one of 43 tapes submitted by CSI.

The BT and Station Data provided by the California Department of Fish and Game were collected off the coast of California and Baja California from 1966 to 1976 for the BT data, and from 1966-67, 1968, 1969-84 for the Station Data. Data include measurements taken after the Santa Barbara Oil Spill in February 1970. The BT and Station Data are in NODC format. This is one of 43 tapes submitted by CSI.

Supplemental Information
Note: The data in this accession are the subject of some confusion, and it is possible that this accession number was also used to identify BT data from the Secretaria de Marina, Servicio de Hidrografia Naval, Argentina from the Koyoshi Maru from 01/05/77 to 01/05/77, Australian MBT data from the South Pacific from 1960 through 1968, UBT data collected by the Korean Navy off the coast of Korea from 1961 to 1977, UBT data collected by Lamont Doherty Geological Observatory in the Southern pacific Ocean from 1976-1978, XBT data supplied by the French Navy from the North Atlantic Ocean from 10/02/52 to 03/16/55 from the FNOC, standard level XBT/MBT data collected by Japan in Antarctic coastal waters from 1961 through 1966, British UBT data for 1955 through 1973 supplied by Paul Fielding of the Hydrographic Department, Ministry of Defense, Britain, via field numerical Oceanographic Center (FNOC), station data collected by the Norwegian Navy in the vicinity of [Ocean Weather] Station Mike from 1948 to 1957, and possibly other data.

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.
