NODC Standard Format Sea Bottom Pressure Guage (F017) Data (1975-1988)
Entry ID: FW00062

Abstract: This data set contains time series measurements of seawater pressure
from anchored or bottom-mounted sensors. Measurements of variations at
depth of seawater pressure provide information on tidal and storm flows,
ocean circulation and other phenomena that cause changes in sea surface
elevation or slope and that can be detected from their pressure
signature. Position, bottom depth and gauge depth are reported for each
station. The data record comprises values of total pressure at specified
date and time. Data values may be subject to averaging or filtering and
are typically reported at time intervals of 10 - 15 minutes. Seawater
temperature may also be reported. Comments may be reported in a text
