Description

% This text file includes data for each subsurface RAFOS % float used in Collins et al., 2018. The file contains six % columns of ascii data at a temporal resolution of 12 % hours. The first column is float number, the second is % time, the third is longitude (degrees), the fourth is % latitude (degrees), the fifth is pressure (decibars) % and the sixth is temperature (T90, °C). Time is serial % date number where a serial date number of 1 corresponds % to Jan-1-0000. Time is referenced to coordinated universal % time (UTC).“NaN” is used when data is not available. For % some floats, the pressure and temperature data are erratic % (a discussion of this issue can be found in Bower, 1994). % Data are smoothed as described in the “Methods” section % of Collins et al., 2018. % % References: % % Bower, A.S., 1994.
