Title: BT Station and Environment Data collected during NOAA research vessel cruises between 1949 and 1973 in the Pacific Ocean
Short Name: RE001AA2 BT Station and Environment (RSCH)
Status: Completed
Creation Date: 1998-11-16
Revision Date: 2020-07-31
Abstract:

BT station and environmental data were collected during NOAA research cruises between 1949 and 1973 throughout the Pacific Ocean. Data collected include thermocline depth, sea surface temperature, air temperature, surface salinity, ten-meter temperature, wind direction and speed, barometer reading, weather, cloud type and amount, sea condition, visibility, secchi depth, and forel scale. The BT data were submitted to NCEI and are accessible through their website (https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/ ).

Purpose:

Research

Notes:

Record count: RSCH 35,865
