Delayed Mode Data collected by SO-SSS in collaboration with NOAA/AOML
The thermosalinographs on Skogafoss and other vessels between Iceland and North America have been operated by NOAA/AOML with support from NOAA/NMFS and other institutions.
SO SSS has been involved in collecting water samples on those ships and validating the thermosalinograph data by comparison to the water samples and nearby data of Argo floats or earlier Palace floats. The validated/corrected version communicated on Download the validated SSS data.is not the official NOAA version.
