Top: down pressure deviation correction, Middle: salinity ratio adjustment, Bottom: Number of filtered spikes.


The mere 8 profiles that were transmitted from the ITP were processed according to the procedures described in the ITP Updated Data Processing Procedures.  The processing parameters for ITP 30 are shown in the figures to the right.  Despite the fact that the CTD head of this profiler included FSI sensors, the same processing procedures were utilized as with the Sea-Bird CTD heads, except that down pressures corrections were not applied, because the FSI sensors protrude from the side of the package, so are not subject to the wake of the instrument. 

See the Data Products tab to the left for descriptions of the three levels (I, II, III) of data processing and to access all data.
