Dataset: IMOS SOOP-XBT Upper Ocean Thermal Data collected on the line PX55 (Melbourne - Wellington)


This dataset contains temperature data obtained from XBTs (expendable bathythermographs) deployed by vessels during different cruises between Melbourne (Australia) and Wellington (New Zealand).

Expendable Bathythermographs (XBTs) have been used for many years by oceanographers to measure the temperature of the upper ocean. These instruments are simple devices which are designed to be deployed from moving vessels, enabling broad scale coverage of the world's oceans.
