PROFILE - Fixed/drifting buoy, bathy, and PALACE float data
Entry ID: FNMOC_PROFILE


Summary
Abstract: Observational data from the FNMOC Ocean QC (Quality Control) process are posted
in near real-time to the USGODAE server. These files contain all of the
unclassified in-situ data used to initialize the US Navy NOGAPS model, and all
of the climate and background (forecast) values used in the QC process.
Temperature and salinity climate profiles and climate variability products are
now from GDEM 3.0, the Navy standard data base (global, 0.25 deg resolution,
monthly files with 76 vertical levels).

Profile observations include data from fixed buoys, drifting buoys, CMAN
stations, XBT/ Mechanical/Hydrocast BT, ship mounted sensors, PALACE floats
(Profiling Autonomous LAgrangian Circulation Explorers), BATHY (bathythermal
observations), TESAC (Temperature, salinity and current data versus depth from
a sea station), and ship track observations.
