Temperature and salinity collected using CTD in the Equatorial Pacific Ocean north of Australia from 19921101 to 19930301 (NCEI Accession 9400084)

browse graphicNOAA logo.
Conductivity, temperature and depth were collected using a SeaCat SBE 16 CTD part of the Tropical Ocean Global Atmosphere (TOGA) Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Response Experiment (COARE) project. The data were collected over a period spanning from November 1, 1992, to March 1, 1993 during the TOGA COARE Intensive Observing Period (IOP) as a joint effort with WHOI. Data was submitted by Matthias Tomczak of Horace Lamb Centre for Oceanographic Research, Flinders University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia.

Five (5) SEACATs moored on IMET buoy (instruments 1066, 1067, 1068 and 1069) worked at depths of 76, 92, 108 and 45.5 meters, respectively) to measure T and C every 225 seconds. Four (4) SEACATs recorded good data. Data were retrieved and processed at Flinders after instrument had been recovered in April 1993. The final processing is completed and data are stored on floppy disk.

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.
