The raw unedited 1995 GLOBEC Georges Bank drifter position data are
available to other GLOBEC scientists using anonymous ftp. For example,
ftp 188.8.131.52 login anonymous password (your email address) cd argos/globec/drifter mget g*.acc quit
The data is in array format since we normally use matlab.
The format for the files are as follows:
1995 Drogue year day long lat Temp C Status year 320.7242 -65.098 37.048 23.75 180.11 1995 320.7935 -65.033 36.996 23.70 180.10 1995 320.7242 -65.098 37.048 23.75 180.11 1995
For the drogue submergence status word: a value of 70 to 120 is normal, greater than 120 may indicate biological fouling of the drogue, and 0 to 20 means the drogue is off.
Drifters g1 to g10 had 7.5 m drogues centered at 15 m. Drifters g11 to g36 had 7.5 m drogues centered at 10 m.
The raw GLOBEC drifter position data are not complete. New data are arriving daily and will be updated to the anonymous ftp files. Also, there are some problems with the temperature and drogue data that have not been corrected to date.
This data are available to GLOBEC scientists to assist in the analysis of other data sets. It will eventually be made available via the data system.
