NOAA/AOML XBT Transect Data



A link to the NOAA/AOML XBT transect website and data archive. These are predetermined transects throughout the Atlantic Ocean region that are repeated approximately every three months with XBTs deployed 10km to 35km apart, in order to measure the mesoscale structure of the ocean and to assess the ocean circulation responsible for redistributing heat and other water properties globally.
