Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Temperature profiles from mechanical bathythermograph (MBT) casts from the R/V Eastward in the North Atlantic Ocean in support of the Integrated Global Ocean Services System (IGOSS) project from 1973-04-24 to 1973-05-05 (NCEI Accession 7300757)

MBT data were collected from the R/V EASTWARD in support of the Integrated Global Ocean Services System (IGOSS) project. Data were collected by the Duke University from 24 April 1973 to 05 May 1973. Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard Universal Bathythermograph Output (UBT) format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/bt.html.

The UBT file format is used for temperature-depth profile data obtained using the mechanical bathythermograph (MBT) instrument. The maximum depth of MBT observations is approximately 285 m. Therefore, MBT data are useful only in studying the thermal structure of the upper layers of the ocean. Cruise information, date, position, and time are reported for each observation. The data record comprises pairs of temperature-depth values. Temperature data in this file are recorded at uniform 5 m depth intervals.

Supplemental Information
Note: Preliminary metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

To develop more accurate metadata, NCEI reviews metadata for all accessions on an ongoing basis. Metadata were updated in August of 2007.
