USAF-C130 Lagrangian Float Data



This dataset includes data from seven Lagrangian floats deployed by the USAF C-130 aircraft ahead of Typhoons Fanapi and Megi as part of ITOP. Data are available from 17-29 September for Fanapi and 16-19 October for Megi. These floats measured latitude, longitude, pressure, salinity, temperature and dissolved oxygen (Megi only). Additional information is available in the readme file. This final data set was provided by the University of Washington on 23 September 2013 and includes Matlab format data files and summary image products in png format. The primary difference from the preliminary data is the calibration of the oxygen sensors.
