Composite plot of ITP temperature and salinity profiles.


The ITP profiler was configured to operate with a standard sampling schedule of 2 one-way profiles between 7 and 760 m depth each day, and the GPS receiver was powered every hour to obtain locations, and buoy temperature and battery voltage status were recorded.  After 258 days of reliable operation and data telemetry, the instrument stopped phoning in – presumably crushed in the ice pack.

The plots to the right are of the final, calibrated, edited data (as opposed to the raw data presented on the active instrument pages).

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.

ITP 10 data can also be found at the links below:

Level II hourly buoy location data in ASCII format: itp10rawlocs.dat

Level III 1-Hz processed profile data in MATLAB format: itp10cormat.tar.Z and itp10cormat.zip

Level III 1-db bin-averaged processed profile data in MATLAB format: itp10final.mat
Level III 1-db bin-averaged processed profile data in ASCII format: itp10final.tar.Z and itp10final.zip
