  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during July - August 1992. It incorporates CTD anchor stations and grid surveys in the Humber Estuary, Humber Plume and the Wash plus some additional casts further east in the Southern North Sea. The data were collected by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Lowestoft Fisheries Laboratory as part of the Joint Nutrient Study I (JoNuS).

  • The UK Argo programme data set comprises measurements of ocean temperature and salinity and provides information of surface and subsurface Lagrangian (measuring movement by tracing the path of a passively drifting object) displacement enabling the derivation of currents. The data set includes a mixture of near-real-time (quality controlled to operational ocean forecasting standards) and delayed mode (quality controlled to climate research standards) data collected by profiling floats. The UK floats from part of a global array throughout the world oceans. Real-time data are available within 24 hours of the float surfacing while delayed mode data become available within 12 months of the profile date. Floats drift at their parking depth (between 1000m and 2025m) for 5 or 10 days depending on float programming. Traditionally floats measured temperature and conductivity at regular intervals during their rise to the surface. In October 2007, the Argo programme achieved its goal to have (and maintain) more than 3000 active floats. As of 2012, some newly deployed floats are being programmed to collect data whilst drifting at their parking depth and during their ascent and additional oceanographic parameters, for example fluorescence, optical backscatter, and dissolved oxygen are being trialled for inclusion in the data set. The data has a variety of uses including assimilation into operational weather forecasts in near-real-time to climate research with the delayed mode data. The data set also includes Argo floats deployed by Mauritius, Saudi Arabia (one float in the Red Sea) Ireland and Portugal, as the British Oceanographic Data Centre manages the data from these floats in addition to those of the UK Argo programme.

  • This dataset comprises 2 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, in September 1994 from stations in the Ria de Vigo between 42 - 43 N, 8.5 - 9.5 W. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Institute of Marine Research, Vigo as part of the Ocean Margin Exchange (OMEX) I project.

  • The dataset comprises 30 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from the South Atlantic Ocean area, specifically across Drake Passage from Elephant Island to Burdwood Bank at the same positions as occupied in previous cruises during December 2003. Stations were full-depth, to within 10 metres of the seabed, with a maximum spacing of 35 km. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the Southampton Oceanography Centre.

  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during May 1981. It incorporates a CTD section in the Irish Sea. The data were collected by the University of Wales, Bangor School of Ocean Sciences.

  • The dataset comprises 131 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from across the W. Indian Ocean area specifically surrounding and between the Aldabra Islands and the Cosmoledo Group, during April and May of 1987. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the University of Wales, Bangor School of Ocean Sciences.

  • The dataset comprises 3 hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, from across the Irish Sea and St. George's Channel area specifically to the south west of the Isle of Man, during June of 1981. A complete list of all data parameters are described by the SeaDataNet Parameter Discovery Vocabulary (PDV) keywords assigned in this metadata record. The data were collected by the University of Wales, Bangor School of Ocean Sciences.

  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during December 1993. It incorporates a CTD survey of the Humber Estuary, Humber Plume, the Wash and the Southern Bight of the North Sea. The data were collected by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food Lowestoft Fisheries Laboratory as part of the Joint Nutrient Study I (JoNuS).

  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during October - November 1988. It incorporates a CTD survey of the Clyde Sea, CTD sections in the North Channel from Copeland to Portpatrick and a CTD section across the Wyville Thompson Ridge. The data were collected by the Scottish Marine Biological Association as part of the North Atlantic Norwegian Sea Exchange (NANSEN) project.

  • This dataset comprises hydrographic data profiles, collected by a conductivity-temperature-depth (CTD) sensor package, during May 1977. It incorporates a survey grid made up of 5 E-W sections across the Irish Sea between the north of Anglesey and the south of the Isle of Man. The data were collected by the University of Wales, Bangor School of Ocean Sciences as part of the Liverpool Bay Front Survey.
