Cloud amount/frequency, TRANSMISSIVITY and other data from ALPHA HELIX and LITTLE DIPPER in the Gulf of Alaska from 1992-01-28 to 1992-04-22 (NODC Accession 9200146)

The Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) and other data were collected in Gulf of Alaska. Data was collected from Ships ALPHA HELIX and LITTLE DIPPER. The data was collected over a period spanning from January 28, 1992 and April 22, 1992. Data was submitted in a diskette by Dr. Chirk Chu, Institute of Marine Science, University of Alaska, Fairbanks, AK. Data has been processed and is available in F022-CTD-Hi Resolution file format of NODC.

F022 High-resolution CTD data is collected from high resolution (conductivity-temperature-depth) instruments. As they are lowered and raised in the oceans, these electronic devices provide nearly continuous profiles of temperature, salinity and other parameters. Data values may be subject to averaging or filtering or obtained by interpolation and may be reported at depth intervals as fine as 1 m. Cruise and instrument information, position, date, time and sampling interval are reported for each station. Environmental data at the time of the cast (meteorological and sea surface conditions) may also be reported. The data record comprises values of temperature, salinity or conductivity, density (computed sigma-t) and possibly dissolved oxygen or transmissivity at specified depth or pressure levels. Data may be reported at either equally or unequally spaced depth or pressure intervals.

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.
