Title:
Deep profiles of temperature, salinity, oxygen saturation and fluorescence data from twelve select NOAA Ship OSCAR ELTON SETTE cruises in the Northwest Hawaiian Islands, 2003 - 2007 (NODC Accession 0036372)
Abstract:
The Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center, part of the National Marine Fisheries Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), conducted cruises in the Northwest Hawaiian Islands on the R/V Oscar Elton Sette during 2003-2007. 12 select cruises are included in this batch. Finalized data include the profiles of temperature, salinity, oxygen saturation, and fluorescense. Most hydrocast stations are near atolls and islands. These are referred to as deep profiles and mostly reach to 500 m.

NODC accession 0036670 contains a duplicate copy of these data and should be considered the reference copy of these data.
