Data were obtained using a 9-m, semi-balloon otter trawl 3.8-cm stretch mesh, and 1.3-cm cod. Samples were taken along depth transects in the US EEZ (Northern Gulf of Mexico).
The National Oceanographic Data Center archives for this study are incomplete. Data was obtained from the original contractor and converted to an OBIS-compatable format by R.S. Carney at Louisiana State University with support from MMS.
LOGICAL CONSISTENCY REPORT: All the data are processed from level-0 to level-1C at EUMETSAT. Throughout this processing a number of quality checks are performed. For more information on this process please see the following document: Dossier definition des algorithmes, IA-DF-0000-2006 Ed: 4 Rev: 2 Date:01/10/2003 D. Blumstein
COMPLETENESS REPORT: Nominally, a granule is either 176 or ... 184 seconds long consisting of 22 or 23 scan lines of 8 seconds each. Each data record contains one scan line. Missing scan lines are the result of transmission errors from the satellite to the ground station.
