Vertical temperature profiles were taken from January 7th 1996 to February 18th 1996 from the research vessel Italica during an oceanographic cruise between New Zealand and the Ross Sea in the framework of the Climatic Long Term Interaction for the Mass-balance in Antarctica (CLIMA) project of the Italian National Antarctic Research Programme (PNRA) using Sippican T7 Expendable Bathythermograph (XBT). Used probes have a vertical resolution of 65 cm and a maximum nominal depth of 760 m.

Abstract

Vertical temperature profiles were taken from January 7th 1996 to February 18th 1996 from the research vessel Italica during an oceanographic cruise between New Zealand and the Ross Sea in the framework of the Climatic Long Term Interaction for the Mass-balance in Antarctica (CLIMA) project of the Italian National Antarctic Research Programme (PNRA) using Sippican T7 Expendable Bathythermograph (XBT). Used probes have a vertical resolution of 65 cm and a maximum nominal depth of 760 m. The transects were completed in about 6 days to provide a synoptic picture of the thermal structure of the upper Southern Ocean. A regular 20 nm spatial sampling rate was adopted across the frontal regions of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. All temperature profiles are quality controlled for consistency between adjacent profiles and through spike editing. Data are in TXT format.
