WATER TEMPERATURE and Other Data from MULTIPLE SHIPS From World-Wide Distribution from 19560911 to 19920430 (NODC Accession 9400133)

These data constitute release 3.0 of a marine data dictionary, developed by Dr. William Balch and Mr. Charles Byrne of Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami, FL. The data format is designed for archiving phytoplankton pigment and productivity data in association with the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS). This version supersedes previous releases of these data. Data were collected during multiple studies world-wide. Parameters include: Date, position, originator, nitrate, phosphate, carbon, chlorophyll, phaeophytin, and other pigments, flourescence/and or light transmission measurements, methodology, and climate. A complete file listing and the record format was included with the data, and is available on server. 192 files containing 18357 profiles of phytoplankton data were received from NODC's Ocean Climate Laboratory.
