Current velocity and hydrographic observations in the Southwestern North Atlantic Ocean: Subtropical Atlantic Climate Studies (STACS), 1989 (NODC Accession 9100033)

The primary objective of the STACS program are to increase our understanding of the dynamics of the North Atlantic circulation and the role of the ocean circulation in global climate, to develop the capability to monitor the climatically important processes, and to provide data needed in the development of the coupled ocean-atmosphere general circulation models to be used for global climate prediction. In particular, the mechanisms by which the ocean transports heat to balance the net radiation deficit at northerly latitudes are being studied.

Data from STACS cruises conducted on the ALBATROSS 4 and NOAA Ship MALCOLM BALDRIGE during two cruises - February and August 1989 - are contained in this report. Table 1 shows the type of data collected on each cruise. Techniques used in this cruises are Pegasus, CTD, and XBT 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.
