Oceanographic Data from Multiple Platforms from 18700722 to 19890507 (NCEI Accession 9400170)

browse graphicNOAA logo.
This accession contains salinity/temperature/depth (STD) profiles and other hydrographic data, mostly in the Sea of Japan. More than a century of profile data from July 1870 to May 1989 were obtained by NODC from Igor Smolyar. Data was collected using 31 different Russian and/or Soviet ships along with few unidentified vessels by Russia, USSR. 71 data files were received by the NODC/Ocean Climate Laboratory as part of the Global Ocean Data Archeaology and Rescue project.

No digital format description is included with the originator data files. Undocumented FORTRAN code used by NODC/Ocean Climate Laboratory is included in the 0-data/software/ directory.

All records in "F12.2 format" containing 2,388 profiles were received by NODC from Daphne Johnson via File transfer Protocol.

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.
