Temperature profile and other data collected using bottle casts in the North Atlantic Ocean from NOAA Ship RESEARCHER from 30 March 1977 to 14 April 1977 (NCEI Accession 7700856)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Temperature profile, sound velocity, and chemical data were collected using bottle casts from the NOAA Ship RESEARCHER in the North Atlantic Ocean from 30 March 1977 to 14 April 1977. Data were collected and submitted by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI). Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard Oceanographic Station Data (SD2) format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/sd2.html.

The SD2 format is used for physical-chemical oceanographic data recorded at discrete depth levels. Most of the observations were made using multi- bottle Nansen casts or other types of water samplers. A small amount (about 5%) were obtained using electronic CTD (conductivity-temperature-depth) or STD (salinity-temperature-depth) recorders. The CTD/STD data were reported to NODC at depth levels equivalent to Nansen cast data, however, and have been processed and stored the same as the Nansen data. Cruise information, position, date and time are reported for each station. Each station contains the measurements taken at observed depth levels, but also includes data values interpolated to a set of standard depth levels.
