Temperature profile and water depth data collected from PAUL using BT and XBT casts in the North Pacific Ocean from 01 April 1989 to 30 April 1990 (NODC Accession 9000135)

The data in this accession was collected using eleven different ships used to conduct 26 different cruises between April 1, 1989 and April 30, 1990. The real time data of water temperature at varying depth bathythermograph (XBT) was recorded in stripcharts by the US Navy. One box of these analog data were submitted by Mr. Paul Stevens of Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center, Monterey CA to NODC. The XBT data from these stripcharts have been digitized and is present in the current NODC data storage system in C116 file format.

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.
