WATER TEMPERATURE and other data from AMBROSE L/S, NOAA Ship ALBATROSS IV and other platforms from 1969-02-01 to 1969-04-10 (NCEI Accession 6900560)

Metadata Updated: December 1, 2023

Data has been processed by NODC to the NODC standard Bathythermograph (MBT) (C128) format.

The C128 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.
