Temperature profiles from MBT casts from the SPENCER from Ocean Weather Station B (OWS-B) in the North Atlantic Ocean from 1967-09-25 to 1967-10-29 (NCEI Accession 6700474)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

Bathythermograph data were collected from the SPENCER within a 1-mile radius of Ocean Weather Station B (5600N 05100W) and in transit. Data were collected by the United States Coast Guard from 25 September 1967 to 29 October 1967. The platform was equipped and staffed to observe weather and sea conditions. Data were processed by NODC to the NODC standard Universal Bathythermograph Output (UBT) format. Full format description is available from NODC at www.nodc.noaa.gov/General/NODC-Archive/bt.html.

The UBT file format is used for temperature-depth profile data obtained using the mechanical bathythermograph (MBT) instrument. The maximum depth of MBT observations is approximately 285 m. Therefore, MBT data are useful only in studying the thermal structure of the upper layers of the ocean. Cruise information, date, position, and time are reported for each observation. The data record comprises pairs of temperature-depth values. Temperature data in this file are recorded at uniform 5 m depth intervals.
