This dataset contains meteorological and physical data collected on R/V Seward Johnson during cruise SJ9505 in the North Atlantic Ocean from 1995-04-07 to 1995-04-19. These data include SST at 5m, air temperature, barometric pressure, salinity calculated from CTD primary sensors, wind_dir, and wind_speed. The instruments used to collect these data include Thermosalinograph. These data were collected by James P. Manning of Northeast Fisheries Science Center - Woods Hole as part of the "U.S. GLOBEC Georges Bank (GB)" project and "U.S. GLOBal ocean ECosystems dynamics (U.S. GLOBEC)" program. The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) submitted these data to NCEI on 2020-02-27.

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

Seward Johnson alongtrack sensor data GLOBEC Georges Bank cruise SJ9505 in 1995.

Dataset Description:
Seward Johnson Cruises: 9505
Shipboard meteorology and sea surface measurements
along the ship's track

Note: As noted below, these data are uncalibrated and should be used accordingly.

Data submitted by: Jim Manning National Marine Fisheries Service NOAA Woods Hole, MA 02543 These data are accessed under the the GLOBEC homepage data process {year} alongtrack

These are stored as single ascii files per cruise with several variables merged to one minute (interpolated) time steps. The first column is the time stamp which, for Albatross convention, is "yrday0_gmt" which means, for example, that a time of "0.5" represents local noontime on Jan 1st. We all understand this data (shipboard temp, salt, wind, etc.) should be treated as uncalibrated records and should not be used other than exploratory purposes .
