        abstract:  The data in this accession consists of 2,679 observations that were collected as part of Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere project from multiple ships over a seven year period. The data was collected between February 1983 and August 1990. The real time data of water temperature at varying depth bathythermograph (XBT) was recorded in stripcharts by the Australian Oceanographic Data Center. Two boxes of stripcharts and radio logs were submitted to NODC by Mr. Ben J. Searle. The XBT data from these stripcharts have been digitized and is present in the current NODC data storage system in C116 file format.
        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.

This was later changed to DE22, with the prefix standing for Destroyer Escort. On 1 January 1969, the Royal Australian Navy adopted the numbering practice used by the US, Canadian and Pakistan Navies, removing the pennant number letter prefix from its ships' hulls. Derwent's pennant number thus became 49.

The first four ships, Parramatta (III), YARRA, STUART and Derwent, were a modified version of the Royal Navy's Type '12' Whitby and Rothesay Class frigates, which had very good sea-keeping qualities. Swan (III) and Torrens (II) were a derivation of the Royal Navy's Leander Class general purpose frigate, which was itself a development of the Type '12'. http://www.navy.gov.au/HMAS_Swan_(III)
