Temperature profiles from MBT casts from the USCGC MATAGORDA from Ocean Weather Station V (OWS-V) in the North Pacific Ocean from 1960-10-25 to 1960-11-22 (NCEI Accession 6000050)

Metadata Updated: December 4, 2020

Bathythermograph data were collected from the USCGC MATAGORDA within a 1-mile radius of Ocean Weather Station V (3400N 16400W) and in transit. Data were collected by the United States Coast Guard from 25 October 1960 to 22 November 1960. 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.
