WATER TEMPERATURE and Other Data from MULTIPLE SHIPS From North American Coastline-South from 19650101 to 19921231 (NCEI Accession 9300056)

Phytoplankton pigments, primary productivity, and associated marine chemistry data collected worldwide from 1,860 stations between January 1965 and December 1992 was submitted by Dr. William Balch, Rosenstiel School of Marine Science, University of Miami in association with the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS). The data contained 52 files and 6,589 records. The data format written by Dr. Balch was designed to archive phytoplankton pigment and productivity data. A hardcopy of the README.TXT file was submitted in with other documentation; it includes a file list, data parameters, record layout, field descriptions, and descriptions of the parameter codes. Additional marine pigment and productivity data submitted by Dr. Balch is archived at NODC under accession number 9200060.
