Oceanographic profile temperature, salinity, and oxygen measurements collected using CTD/XBT from the Ron Brown in the Pacific Ocean from 2007 to 2008 (NODC Accession 0046077)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

XBT/CTD profile comparison data from the oceanographic line P18 2007/2008. XBT Deployments XBTs provided by Prof. Dean Roemmich of SIO were dropped during the cruise for purposes of evaluating fall rate errors in the equations used to convert the time elapsed since an XBT enters the water to depth. The goals of this study, designed by Dr. Gregory C. Johnson of NOAA/PMEL, are to assess possible variations in the XBT fall rate equation as a function of ship speed and to allow comparison of co-located XBT and CTD temperature-depth profiles. Further information on this study can be obtained from Gregory C. Johnson (Gregory.C.Johnson@noaa.gov).
