Title: PROFILE - Fixed/drifting buoy, bathy, and PALACE float data
Description:
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.
