Databank of Bottom Pressure Recorder Data in the North Atlantic (1970-1983) from Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (POL)
Entry ID: BODC_POL_NAtl_BottomPressure

Abstract: The data set comprises time series measurements from offshore pressure
gauges mounted on the sea floor. The data holdings are approximately
100 observation months from 30 sites. The data are from trans-ocean
sections in the North Atlantic. Data records contain date/time, total
pressure (seawater plus atmospheric), relative pressure, and
occasionally, temperature. The sampling interval is typically 15
minutes or hourly, over deployment periods ranging from 1 to 6
months. Data were collected mainly by the Proudman Oceanographic
Laboratory (POL), Bidston and are managed by BODC.

AVAILABILITY: Data are available from BODC on magnetic tape, floppy
disk or via ftp over Internet.
