WATER TEMPERATURE and other data from CALIFORNIA STAR, FUA KAVENGA and other platforms in the NE Pacific from 1991-01-25 to 1993-11-29 (NCEI Accession 9600004)

browse graphicPreview graphic
The water depth and temperature data were collected in NE Pacific (limit-180) from multiple ships between January 25, 1991 and November 29, 1993. Three originator's high resolution bathythermograph (XBT) network data files containing 5,482 XBTs collected from commercial ships were submitted via file transfer protocol by Dr. Dean Roemmich, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, La Jolla, CA via Lisa Lehmann.

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, NCEI reviews metadata for all accessions on an ongoing basis.
