Gridded mooring data

12-hourly temperature and salinity data used for the calculation of the mid-ocean transport according to Cunningham et al. (2007). The instrument mooring temperature salinity and depth data are merged into five vertical profiles:

  • Merged western boundary profiles
  • Profiles from western boundary mooring WB3
  • Profiles from western boundary mooring WB5
  • Western Mid Atlantic Ridge profile
  • Eastern Mid Atlantic Ridge profile
  • Merged eastern boundary profile

All profiles contain timeseries of 12-hourly temperature and salinity data gridded onto 20m intervals starting in April 2004.
