BAROMETRIC PRESSURE and Other Data from ALPHA HELIX and Other Platforms From Bering Sea from 19850101 to 19950106 (NCEI Accession 9500145)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The accession contains Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD); Chlorophyll; and Nutrient data collected in Bering Sea as part of Inner Shelf Transfer and Recycling (ISHTAR) program collected from 1985-1995 using multiple ships. The compressed tar file ishtar.tar.Z contained ASCII files of the ISHTAR research project headed by Dr. C.P. McRoy of the Institute of Marine Science, University of Alaska Fairbanks. There are two types of files: 1. Chlorophyll (20), and 2. Nutrient (19). They are differentiated by filenames. Chlorophyll data files end in chl.dat and Nutrient data files end in nut.dat. The prefixes are cruise names. Good format information is provided with the data files.

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.
