        abstract:  The water depth and temperature data was collected using two dozen different ships through a grant to Dr. Douglas C. Biggs MMS # 14-35-0001-30501. The data was collected by Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center (FNOC), Monterey, CA from May 1985 to March 1990. The originator's bathythermograph (XBT) and CTD data was submitted in three diskettes by Paul Stevens. The data has been processed and is now available on line in C116 Bathythermograph XBT file format of NODC.
        purpose:  This dataset is available to the public for a wide variety of uses including scientific research and analysis.

        supplementalInformation:  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. Points of contact for this data set include: Contact info: Agency: US NAVY; FLEET NUMERICAL OCEANOGRAPHY CENTER PI: Stevens, Paul Address: address: 345 KOLB AVE. city: MONTEREY state: CA postal: 93940 country: UNITED STATES
