NODC Accession 0106732 includes profile, undulating profile, biological and physical data collected aboard the OCEANUS during cruises OC340 and OC343 in the North Atlantic Ocean from 1999-03-30 to 1999-06-30. These data include TEMPERATURE, FLUORESCENCE, LIGHT TRANSMISSION, SIGMA-T, SALINITY, HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE, SIGMA-THETA and Potential temperature (theta). The instruments used to collect these data include Undulating towed profiler and CTD. These data were collected by Jack Barth of Oregon State University and Dave Hebert of University of Rhode Island as part of GB. The Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO) submitted these data to NODC on 2013-04-25.

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

The seasoar is a towed, undulating vehicle which records CTD and other data. The system records SeaBird CTD data at 24 hz, and it had other sensors on the A/D channels. The seasoar gets towed along different tracklines to map out various survey areas. Each time the seasoar is deployed and recovered is one "tow", and each of the cruises have a number of tows.

These are flat files, with data every 1-sec for each tow. The tows are
numbered sequentialy (tow1, tow2, etc).

Notes:
1. There are two fields for different fluorometers: flvolt (aka FL-1) is from a WetLabs Wetstar fluorometer, while flvolt_2 (aka FL-2) is from a WetLabs FlashPAK fluorometer.
2. Original field name is shown in parenthesis in the "Description" column.
3. There were some problems in the data fields whenever the lat/lon were interpolated for lack of GPS observations. The OC343 data files were replaced on-line with the reprocessed files October 16, 2000.
