Current profile data were collected from the GULF STREAM in the NW Atlantic (limit-40 W) and other locations from. 01 April 1965 to 01 November 1970. Data were collected by the Nova University; Physical Oceanography Laboratory from 01 April 1965 to 01 November 1970. Data are self formatting.


Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.
