WATER TEMPERATURE and other data from AIRCRAFT in the NW Atlantic from 1992-05-06 to 1992-05-08 (NCEI Accession 9200252)

The water depth and temperature data were collected in he water depth and temperature data were collected in TOGA Area - Pacific (30 N to 30 S) as part of Louisiana-Texas (LATEX part C) Gulf of Mexico Eddy Circulation Study from aircraft between May 6, 1992 and May 8, 1992. The originator's bathythermograph aerial (AXBT) data containing 34 drops were submitted by Dr. Thomas Berger, Science Applications, Inc. Raleigh NC. The study was supported by grant no MMS 14-35-0001-30633. The data have been converted and are now available on line in C118 (AXBT) file format of NODC.

C118 data contains temperature-depth profile data 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. Unlike the MBT Data File, in which temperature values were recorded at uniform 5 m intervals, the XBT data files contained 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 either 450 or 760 m. With special instruments, measurements can be obtained to 1830 m.
