Historical CTD Data 1978-1991

Below are links to data collected on several historical Oceanographic CTD cruises. The original field projects were funded from a variety of sources including the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Department of Energy (DOE).

In some cases electronic versions of the data were no longer available so paper listings were scanned and saved as pdf files. Scanning the paper listings was funded by Washington Sea Grant. The scanned files have been submitted to Sydney Levitus, Director, World Data Center for Oceanography, where they are in the process of being converted to electronic form and submitted to the National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). Click on the green shaded Cruise ID cells to link to those files.

Electronic data files were identified and organized with support from the Washington State Department of Natural Resources. Electronic data files can be accessed by clicking on the blue shaded Cruise ID cells.
