Title: HOT Physical Oceanography XBT data
Description:
Abstract:
Scientists working within the Hawaiian Ocean Time-series (HOT) project, "http://hahana.soest.hawaii.edu/", have been making repeated observations of the hydrography, chemistry and biology at a station north of Hawaii since October 1988. The objective of this research is to provide a comprehensive description of the ocean at a site representative of the central North Pacific Ocean. Cruises are made approximately once a month to Station ALOHA, the HOT deep-water station (22 45'N, 158W) located about 100 km north of Oahu, Hawaii. Measurements of the thermohaline structure, water column chemistry, currents, primary production and particle sedimentation rates are made over a 72-hour period on each cruise. Vertical temperature profiles were obtained with XBTs (Expendable Bathythermograph) during the first 24 HOT cruises. XBT data are distributed in ASCII format. A summary of profiles taken on a cruise are listed in the hot#xbt.hdr (where # is the cruise number) file. The first line specifies the cruise number. The second line labels the columns. The remaining records contain information on each profile. The continuous flow of these data depends on funding, and that depends in part on the credits that we get from the data users. If you use these data in your project, please contact Dr. Roger Lukas to avoid possible duplication of efforts. Please consider the benefits of possible scientific collaborations in the analysis of these data. If you use our data in your project, we would appreciate your acknowledgement of the HOT project.The following NSF grant number should be cited in publications: OCE-9303094. A preprint and reprint of the publications utilizing HOT data would be appreciated.
