Temperature and salinity profiles from bathythermograph and other instruments from multiple platforms from a world-wide distribution from 19930101 to 19930630 (NCEI Accession 9300191)

The accession contains temperature and salinity profiles, water transparency and other data that are in the bathythermograph/temperatue-salinity-currents (BATHY/TESAC) formats. Data were collected from multiple platform from a World-Wide distribution. Data were sent as radio messages from ships to Japanese Hydrographic Office, Tokyo, Japan from January to June 1993. Data are from 28,067 stations containing 122,840 records and were collected as part of Integrated Global Ocean Service System (IGOSS). Data were forwarded by Dr. Osamu Yamada to NODC. The data are in a single ASCII text formatted columnar file. The BATHY/TESAC format descriptions required to understand these data are archived in this accession.
