Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

CAUTION: This data set needs to be investigated with Don Collins before the abstract can be finalised. After Suchira's discussion with Mitchell it is confirmed that the data in the accession and the submitter do not match. Suchira proposes putting all the details available in supplemental information till the dicrepencies can be sorted out and leaving only one paragraph abstract.

The paragraph written by Suchira is--The data in this accession is archived hydrographic data sets spanning a period of 52 years from January 1932 to December 1984. Originator's data submitted in total of 43 tapes by Compass Systems, Inc. have been converted to the current NODC data storage format. Data were submitted by Mr. Arthur D. Stroud. These data sets contain physical profile data collected by multiple institutions spread across the world in different sea areas such as North Atlantic Ocean, North Pacific Ocean, South Pacific Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, Coastal Waters of California, Coastal Waters of Washington/Oregon and Drake Passage using multiple ships.

The information available for the different data sets is provided below. from the Secretaria de Marina, Servicio de Hidrografia Naval, Argentina.

These data are in source format and are part of 43 tapes submitted by CSI. These are four tapes containing Japanese UBT data. These data are UBT observations off the coast of Japan from 1970-1976 and 1978. These data were provided by JSDF to FNOC. Three of the tapes are in NODC UBT format and one tape is in source code. The documentation includes a description of the source code format. These tapes are part of a shipment of 43 tapes sent by CSI.

These are seven tapes containing British UBT data for the years 1955, 1964, 1966, 1967 and 1973.
