Alongtrack data for LMG1110
Entry ID: alongtrack_LMG110


Summary
Abstract: A broad array of ship and environmental conditions were logged continuously along the ship's track during cruise LMG1110 west of the West Antarctic Peninsula. Reported at one minute values are navigational, meteorological, solar and sea surface parameters.

This alongtrack data set consists of a single file produced for each day of the LMG1110 cruise, from 11/2/2011 to 12/1/2011. Data were obtained primarily by applying calibrations to raw data and decimating to whole point intervals. However, several fields are derived measurements from more than a single raw input.

Quality The JGOFS data set is obtained primarily by applying calibrations to raw data and decimating to whole minute intervals. However, several fields are derived measurements from more than a single raw input. Note: Null, unused, or unknown fields are filled with 9's and then changed to 'nd' in the JGOFS data.

Additionally, 3 separate QC plots are generated daily by the ET using the JGOFS data set. These plots include TSG and Bathymetry data, meteorological data and navigation data.
Use Constraints Any person making substantial use of a data set must communicate with the investigators who acquired the data prior to publication and anticipate that the data collectors will be co-authors of published results. This extends to model results and to data organized for retrospective studies.
