Temperature profiles from XBT and MBT casts from NOAA Ship Researcher as part of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration / Cooperative Investigations of the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions (IDOE/CICAR) from 1971-07-14 to 1971-09-01 (NCEI Accession 7101414)

Temperature profiles were collected from XBT and MBT casts from NOAA Ship Researcher from 14 July 1971 to 01 September 1971. Data were collected by the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) as part of the International Decade of Ocean Exploration / Cooperative Investigations of the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions (IDOE/CICAR). Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard Universal Bathythermograph Output (UBT) format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/bt.html.

The UBT format contains temperature-depth profile data obtained using expendable bathythermograph (XBT) instruments. Cruise information, position, date and time were reported for each observation. The data records are comprised of pairs of temperature-depth values. The XBT data files contain temperature values at non-uniform depths. These depths were recorded at the minimum number of points ("inflection points") required to accurately define the temperature curve. Standard XBTs can obtain profiles to depths of 450 m or 760 m. Special instruments permit measurements to 1830 m.
