MetadataShow full item record
This archive consists of two netCDF data files, one comma-separated value data file, and a text metadata file. The data in this archive were collected as part of oceanographic surveys performed by autonomous Seaglider vehicles near Ocean Station Papa in the southern Gulf of Alaska during 2008-2010. These were collected by the Eriksen Seaglider research group at the University of Washington in an effort to study upper-ocean flows and temperature, salinity, and oxygen balances at this location. Data in this archive consist of smoothed vertical profiles of ocean properties collected by Seagliders, estimates of currents in the top 1000 m of the ocean, and oxygen data collected independently from ships at Ocean Station Papa. The collection and analyses of these data were supported by National Science Foundation grants OCE-0628663 and OCE-1129090. The supporting metadata file, 'Metadata_SG_at_osp.txt,' gives a detailed overview, file and variable descriptions, and a list of references where these data have previously been published. The metadata also provides a link to a script that illustrates how to load, manipulate, and plot the data in MATLAB.
