Data access and demonstration
- U.S. GLOBEC Georges Bank on-line digital data.
- Check Data Notes (last updated
January 25, 2000) for
time critical information about our on-line data.
- Read the Data
Acknowledgement Policy before using any of these data.
- The thesaurus contains definitions
of field names and instruments used in the program.
- You can search for data using a field
name search form. By specifying
the field names of
interest, e.g. find me all data with salinity (sal) and temperature
(temp), you will see a list of
clickable object links, providing access directly to the data.
