Temperature profiles from XBT casts from the GYRE in the Gulf of Mexico from 1992-05-17 to 1992-06-04 (NCEI Accession 9200232)

The water depth and temperature data were collected in the Gulf of Mexico as part of Texas Institutions Gulf Ecosystem Research (TIGER) program from ship GYRE between May 17, 1992, and June 4, 1992. The program was funded by a grant to Dr. DOUGLAS C. BIGGS MMS # 14-35-0001-30501. The originator's bathythermograph (XBT) data containing 28 profiles were submitted on a diskette by Mr. David J. Voegele, Texas A&M University, College Station, TX. The data are temperature-depth profiles obtained using expendable bathythermograph (XBT) instruments. Cruise information, position, date and time were reported for each observation. The data record was 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. The data also have been converted and are available in the C116 (XBT) file format.
