Pacific Adjustments

This page compiles the various lines of evidence for or against adjustment of parameters on each cruise. This evidence may include crossover results, internal consistency checks and calibration information where appropriate. Note that any proposed adjustments are only recommendations and will be applied only to the Pacific summary file at Princeton not the original files stored at the national data facilities. Summary tables of the adjustments for the Pacific data set are given below. Click on the cruise name on the left to view the justification for individual cruises.
