Temperature profile and water depth data collected from KING using BT and XBT casts in the North Pacific Ocean from 24 October 1980 to 26 April 1990 (NODC Accession 9000122)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

The data in this accession was collected from over thirty different ships between October 24, 1980 and April 26, 1990 representing fifty five different cruises. The real time data of water temperature at varying depth bathythermograph (XBT) was recorded in stripcharts by the US Navy. These stripcharts and log sheets were submitted to NODC by Mr. Paul Stevens of Fleet Numerical Oceanography Center (FNOC), Monterey CA. The XBT data from these stripcharts have been digitized and is present in the current NODC data storage system in C116 file format.
