Title: Ocean Station Data (Mainly Temperature and Salinity) from the Northeast Atlantic, from 1900 to the Present
Description:
Abstract:
Classical oceanographic bottle stations and vertical profiles (STD/CTD) area available from 1900 to the present, mainly for the Northeast Atlantic. Principal parameters are temperature and salinity, though O2, PO4, P, SiO2, NO2 and NO3 may be recorded. Values of sound velocity, sigma-T and dynamic depth anomaly are computed. Oceanographic data at are discrete depth levels, mainly from Nansen bottle casts. There are 200,00 stations.
