Oceanographic profile temperature data using XBT, collected by the Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island during R/V Knorr cruise KN200-2 in the North Atlantic Ocean during 2011-03 (NCEI Accession 0121516)

The dataset consists of 37 XBT casts in the region northeast of Flemish Cap. The XBTs were Lockheed Martin Sippican Deep Blue probes with a nominal depth range of 760 m. The MK21 data acquisition system was used to log the raw data and the standard depth equation was used to determine probe depth. The data were subsequently bin-averaged into 1 m bins. The XBT data were collected during R/V Knorr cruise KN200-2 to the region northeast of Flemish Cap in the Northwest Atlantic. The purpose of the cruise was to observe the process of anticyclonic eddy generation and evolution in the so-called Northwest Corner region, where the northward-flowing North Atlantic current turns to flow eastward. During the cruise the upper ocean hydrography, in an approximately 250 km square region centered on the turning region, was observed with a grid of CTD casts to 1000 db spaced approximately 50 km apart. The XBT was deployed at roughly the midpoints of some of the transits between CTD stations and at other locations in the region.
