Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Near-realtime oceanographic profile data collected by AXBT's and AXCTD's from NOAA Aircraft from 20100508 to 20100724 as part of the GTSPP in response to the 20100420 Deepwater Horizon oil spill event (NCEI Accession 0065723)

Data products and in situ oceanographic data collected in response to the Deepwater Horizon Event in the Gulf of Mexico (May 2010). The Global Temperature and Salinity Profile Programme (GTSPP) received the near-realtime data as Bathy messages for both the NOAA42 and NOAA49 Aircraft from the Global Telecommunication System (GTS). The data are available in three formats, CSV (comma separated value), NetCDF (network common data form) and the GTSPP ASCII formats. An inventory file is available, including plots of each vertical profile. A .kml file is available for Google Earth display. This data collection is updated weekly by automated processes performed by NODC.
