Observing Our Ocean

We routinely collect and archive physical oceanographic data other than that collected by the Real Time Observatories.  Datasets include:

  • Near surface temperature and salinity collected by the research vessels, Celtic Explorer and Celtic Voyager while at sea.
  • Vertical profiles of temperature and salinity measured by Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) profilers.
  • Time series of temperature and salinity at project specific sites.
  • Water column current structure measure by Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) at project specific sites.
  • Spectral wave data at project specific sites.

Oceanographic data is freely available via Marine Data Online or on our Data Request page.
