Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Underway - surface and physical data collected in the North Atlantic Ocean on the OCEANUS cruises OC296, OC301 and OC303 as part of the GB project from 1997-01-12 to 1997-05-23 (NCEI Accession 0098912)

This dataset contains physical and surface underway data collected on OCEANUS in the North Atlantic Ocean from 1997-01-12 to 1997-05-23. The instruments used to collect these data include Thermosalinograph. These data were collected by James P. Manning of National Marine Fisheries Service as part of the GB project(s). The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) submitted these data to NODC on 2012-10-12.

The following is the text of the abstract provided by BCO-DMO:

Oceanus alongtrack ship data, GLOBEC Georges Bank cruises, 1997 collected from the R/V Oceanus from the Gulf of Maine and Georges Bank from January 12, 1997 to May 23, 1997 (GB project).

Oceanus Cruises: 296, 301 and 303 Shipboard meteorology and sea surface measurements along the ship's track Note: I (Jim Manning) suggest that investigators use Dick Payne's version of OCEANUS alongtrack data. The raw data I post here was processed primarily while underway and has obvious problems. There are unrealistic (sometimes negative) temperature and erratic salinity. Winds are of especially poor quality as noted below.

I have been delayed in getting this data on-line because I am not happy with my "corrected" wind (with ships motion removed) and, I am still not comfortable with posting the corrected wind so I have added a comment on the fact that it is questionable. I have notified the OCEANUS SSSG people about this problem. In the meantime I suggest that any one interested in wind for these periods use the NOAA buoy winds or Dick Payne's OCEANUS alongtrack data instead.
