The Pacific Islands Fisheries Science Center, part of the National Marine
Fisheries Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA),
conducted cruises in the main Hawaiian Islands, Northwest Hawaiian Islands,
Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands on the R/Vs
Hi'ialakai and Oscar Elton Sette during 2007-2008. 10 select cruises
comprising 200 profiles are included. Finalized data include the profiles
of temperature, salinity, oxygen saturation, and fluorescense. Most
hydrocast stations are near atolls and islands and typically reach
to 500 m. Shallow casts can be of much shorter range.

Typically the filename has a sequence number or place name to denote the cast. ASCII format, Self-description header information Directory 1-data: files created by NODC *ASCII CSV redundant copies were made for any cruise that included Excel spreadsheets or text files for Word documents. Directory names mirror 0-data/ as described above. Filenames are the same, except the name of a given sheet within an Excel file is concatenated to the root filename.
