Chemical, physical, and other data collected using bottle, BT, current meter, MBT, meteorological sensors, and secchi disk casts in the North Pacific Ocean as part of the California Cooperative Fisheries Investigation (CALCOFI) project, from 01 January to 04 December 1968 (NCEI Accession 7100603)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Chemical, physical, and other data were collected using bottle, BT, current meter, MBT, meteorological sensors, and secchi disk casts from January 1, 1968 to December 4, 1968. Data were submitted by Stanford University; Hopkins Marine Station as part of the California Cooperative Fisheries Investigation (CALCOFI) project. Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard F004 water physics and chemistry format. Full F004 Format descriptions are available from the NODC homepage at www.nodc.noaa.gov/.

The F004 format contains data from measurements and analysis of physical and chemical characteristics of the water column. Chemical parameters that may be recorded are salinity, pH and concentration of oxygen, ammonia, nitrate, phosphate, chlorophyll and suspended solids. Physical parameters that may be recorded include temperature, density (sigma-t), transmissivity and current velocity (east-west and north-south components). Cruise and station information may include environmental conditions of the study site at the time of observation. Data are very sparse prior to 1951.
