Temperature profiles from MBT casts from the CHAUTAUQUA from Ocean Weather Station V (OWS-V) in the North Pacific Ocean from 28 October 1962 to 26 November 1962 (NCEI Accession 6200265)

Metadata Updated: March 10, 2021

Bathythermograph data were collected from the CHAUTAUQUA within a 1-mile radius of Ocean Weather Station V (3400N 164000E) and in transit. Data were collected by the United States Coast Guard from 28 October 1962 to 26 November 1962. The platform was equipped and staffed to observe weather and sea conditions. Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard Universal Bathythermograph Output (UBT) format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/bt.html.

The UBT file format is used for temperature-depth profile data obtained using the mechanical bathythermograph (MBT) instrument. The maximum depth of MBT observations is approximately 285 m. Therefore, MBT data are useful only in studying the thermal structure of the upper layers of the ocean. Cruise information, date, position, and time are reported for each observation. The data record comprises pairs of temperature-depth values. Temperature data in this file are recorded at uniform 5 m depth intervals.
