Dataset Overview | National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

U.S East Coast Rig Instrumentation Program - measured and observed oceanographic and meteorological data from rigs operating in the Baltimore Canyon OCS area from 1978-09-01 to 1979-04-30 (NCEI Accession 7900288)

browse graphicGraphic not available.
The oceanographic-meteorological data were collected during the months of September 1978 to April 1979 by the Baltimore Canyon Operators who are participants in the U.S. East Coast Rig Instrumentation Program. This data is submitted to comply with USGS Notice to Lesses 78-5. Data from the joint industry funded instrumented rig (PACESETTER III, operated by Mobil) is presented in the first section of the attached reports. Supplemental data collected by other operators is tabulated in the second section. The codes for cloud cover and visibility observations are also included.

Supplemental Information
The publication listed below is related to the data collection and is available from the NOAA Central Library:

Measured and observed oceanographic and meteorological data from rigs operating in the Baltimore Canyon OCS area. [Houston, Tex. : Continental Oil Co.].

Note: 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).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information accurately represents all available information from the legacy database at the time that this description was created. However, proper attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, NCEI reviews metadata for all accessions on an ongoing basis.
