As part of the Tropical Atmosphere Ocean (TAO) Program, the National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) was responsible for the at-sea collection, quality control and processing, and delivery of these CTD data in netCDF files to the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). NDBC collected these CTD data during cruises to service the TAO array of moorings.
