Temperature and Salinity Data from the Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP)

Abstract: The task of Global Temperature-Salinity Profile Program (GTSPP) is to create a
complete data and information base of ocean temperature and salinity data
captured both in real-time and submitted in delayed mode. The goal is to
construct a database of both the highest quality and the most complete salinity
and temperature data available.
