Description:
Abstract:
This data set shows the location where a CTD (Conductivity -Temperature - Depth) device was used. CTD were determined while in the Caribbean Sea. The point location attributes are longitude, latitude, and date of placement in the water; this information was acquired during the U.S. Geological Survey Science Cruise 03008 in collaboration with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Research Cruise RB0303 from 18 February to 7 March 2003, Leg II of III. (Leg I and III: 20020924 to 20020930 and 20030828 to 20030904, respectively).
Purpose:
To derive sound velocity information used for sonar mapping calibration and to determine some water characteristics.

Process_Description:
Edits to the metadata were made to fix any errors that MP v 2.9.36 flagged. This is necessary to enable the metadata to be successfully harvested for various data catalogs. In some cases, this meant adding text "Information unavailable" or "Information unavailable from original metadata" for those required fields that were left blank. Other minor edits were probably performed (title, publisher, publication place, etc.). The link to the data and the publication in the Identification section had to be fixed. The link to the data was added to the distribution section. Added ISO 19115 Topic Category keywords. Empty elements were deleted. The distribution format name was modified in an attempt to be more consistent with other metadata files of the same data format. The metadata date (but not the metadata creator) was edited to reflect the date of these changes. The metadata available from a harvester may supersede metadata bundled within a download file. Compare the metadata dates to determine which metadata file is most recent.
