PRESSURE - WATER and Other Data from ISLAS ORCADAS and Other Platforms From North Atlantic Ocean and Others from 19320101 to 19841231 (NODC Accession 9000018)

CAUTION: This data set needs to be investigated with Don Collins before
the abstract can be finalised. After Suchira's discussion with Mitchell
it is confirmed that the data in the accession and the submitter do not
match. Suchira proposes putting all the details available
in supplemental information till the dicrepencies can be sorted out and leaving only one paragraph abstract.

The paragraph written by Suchira is--The data in this accession is archived hydrographic data sets spanning a
period of 52 years from January 1932 to December 1984. Originator's data

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.
