British Oceanographic Data Centre Historical bottom pressure recorder data inventory
Original (non-English) name
The British Oceanographic Data Centre’s (BODC) bottom pressure recorder data holdings are described as either collected in the open ocean (water depth greater than 200m) or the shelf seas (water depth less than 200m).
The inventory provides access to the individual stations as ASCII (BODC request format) data files, sorted by start date. Alternatively, two ‘zip’ compressed files containing all data from either the open ocean (oceanbpr.zip) or the shelf seas (shelfbpr.zip) are available. Data documentation is provided as individual ASCII text files for each bottom pressure recorder or one file (bppr_document.pdf) containing information for all the bottom pressure recorder data.
Some of the data are also included within the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Oceans (IAPSO)/Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) Pelagic Tidal Constants data set.
