This dataset contains XBT vertical temperature profiles collected from 2006-01-01 to 2006-01-04 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). Sippican T7 Expendable Bathythermograph (XBT) probes with a vertical resolution of 65 cm and a maximum nominal depth of 760 m were used. The mean spatial resolutions ranges between 15 nm and 20 nm, according to the specific part of the cruise. XBT launches might have been interrupted in case of severe sea and weather conditions. This implies the possible presence of gaps in the sampling. All temperature profiles are quality controlled for consistency between adjacent profiles and through spike editing. Data are provided in TXT format.

Abstract

This dataset contains XBT vertical temperature profiles collected from 2006-01-01 to 2006-01-04 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). Sippican T7 Expendable Bathythermograph (XBT) probes with a vertical resolution of 65 cm and a maximum nominal depth of 760 m were used. The mean spatial resolutions ranges between 15 nm and 20 nm, according to the specific part of the cruise. XBT launches might have been interrupted in case of severe sea and weather conditions. This implies the possible presence of gaps in the sampling. All temperature profiles are quality controlled for consistency between adjacent profiles and through spike editing. Data are provided in TXT format.
