can one of you help this gent out. He would like to know how the water samples from the trip were collected.
We recently acquired 15 cards, from the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office, containing oceanographic data collected by the USS Triton during her submerged circumnavigation of the world. These data were collected during the period 18 - 24 February 1960, just north of the equator in the Atlantic Ocean. Each of these 15 stations contains temperature and salinity measurements collected at various depth levels between 7 and
213 meters. We are curious as to the method used to collect these oceanographic observations while submerged. I have enjoyed looking through your Triton website but there were no comments as to the scientific work being carried out by the three Naval Hydrographic Office scientists.
The data from this historic cruise has been digitized and will be added to the National Oceanographic Data Center's World Ocean Database where it will be used for oceanographic and climate change research.
Any assistance or contacts you might provide in discovering the method used to collect these oceanographic observations while submerged will be greatly appreciated.
