Water temperature from XBT taken from the research vessel Araon in the Southern Ocean and Southwest Pacific Ocean from 2013-01-24 to 2013-02-06 (NCEI Accession 0174794)

Metadata Updated: December 1, 2023

This dataset contains XBT vertical temperature profiles collected from January 24th 2013 to February 6th 2013 from the research vessel Araon during an oceanographic cruise between New Zealand and the Ross Sea in the framework of the Southern Ocean Chokepoints Italian Contribution (SOChIC) project of the Italian National Antarctic Research Programme (PNRA). Sippican T7 Expendable Bathythermograph (XBT) probes with a vertical resolution of 65 cm and a maximum nominal depth of 760 m were used. The mean spatial resolutions ranges between 15 nautical miles and 20 nm, according to the specific part of the cruise. XBT launches might have been interrupted in case of severe sea and weather conditions. This implies the possible presence of gaps in the sampling. All temperature profiles are quality controlled for consistency between adjacent profiles and through spike editing. Data are provided in TXT format.
