NOAA/NMFS/CRED Deep CTD profiles from 15 cruises near islands, atolls and shoals in the central tropical Pacific 1999-2012 (NODC Accession 0115299)

The Coral Reef Ecosystem Division of the Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center, part of the National Marine Fisheries Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), conducted CTD profiling during 15 research cruises on the NOAA Ships Hi'ialakai, Townsend Cromwell, and Oscar Elton Sette in the years 1999 to 2012, totally 1,118 casts. Processed data include the profiles of temperature, salinity, oxygen, fluorescense, and other ancillary parameters. Most hydrocast stations are near atolls and islands. Casts in this NODC accession are referred to as deep profiles and mostly reach to 500 m. These casts are kept separate from casts of the same cruises that are designated as shallow. Shallow casts are stored in separate NODC accessions.
