Dataset: IMOS SOOP-XBT Upper Ocean Thermal Data collected on the line PX2 (across the Banda Sea)


Temperature data from the TOGA/WOCE transect PX2 across the Banda Sea (Flores Sea - Torres Strait) has been collected since 1983 and are ongoing. The transect is repeated approximately 12 times a year with profiles obtained approximately every 50-100 Km.
The data are obtained from XBTs (expendable bathythermographs) deployed vie marchant vessels, and are managed by the Joint Australian Facility for Ocean Observing Systems (JAFOOS), a collaborative venture between CSIRO Marine Research and the Bureau of Meteorology Research Centre (BMRC).
