WATER TEMPERATURE and other data from MCCULLOCH, NOAA Ship ALBATROSS IV and other platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, North Pacific Ocean and other waters from 1955-02-20 to 1966-08-31 (NCEI Accession 6900257)

MBT data were collected from NOAA Ship ALBATROSS IV and Other Platforms in support of the Fleet Observations of Oceanographic Data (FLOOD) project. Data were collected by US Navy; Ships of Opportunity and other institutions from 20 February 1955 to 31 August 1966. The platform was equipped and staffed to observe weather and sea conditions. 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 file format is used for temperature-depth profile data obtained using the mechanical bathythermograph (MBT) instrument. The maximum depth of MBT observations is approximately 285 m. Therefore, MBT data are useful only in studying the thermal structure of the upper layers of the ocean. Cruise information, date, position, and time are reported for each observation. The data record comprises pairs of temperature-depth values. Temperature data in this file are recorded at uniform 5 m depth intervals.
