Cloud amount/frequency, TRANSMISSIVITY and other data from GYRE in the Gulf of Mexico from 1994-07-18 to 1994-07-20 (NCEI Accession 9400128)

The Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) and Bathythermograph (XBT) data were collected in Gulf of Mexico as part of Texas Institutions Gulf Ecosystem Research (TIGER) project funded by grant no MMS # 14-35-0001-30501. Data was collected from Ship GYRE cruise 94G05. The data was collected over a period spanning from July 18, 1994 and July 20, 1994. Data was submitted in two diskettes by Dr. Douglas C. Biggs, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX via Eddie Webb. Data from 9 CTD stations containing 18,570 records has been processed and is available in F022-CTD-Hi Resolution file format of NODC.

F022 High-resolution CTD data is collected from high resolution (conductivity-temperature-depth) instruments. As they are lowered and raised in the oceans, these electronic devices provide nearly continuous profiles of temperature, salinity and other parameters. Data values may be subject to averaging or filtering or obtained by interpolation and may be reported at depth intervals as fine as 1 m. Cruise and instrument information, position, date, time and sampling interval are reported for each station. Environmental data at the time of the cast (meteorological and sea surface conditions) may also be reported. The data record comprises values of temperature, salinity or conductivity, density (computed sigma-t) and possibly dissolved oxygen or transmissivity at specified depth or pressure levels. Data may be reported at either equally or unequally spaced depth or pressure intervals.
