Title of datasetSURATLANT: a 1993-2017 surface dataset in the central part of the North Atlantic subpolar gyre
Narrative summary of datasetThe SURATLANT dataset (SURveillance ATLANTique) consists of individual data of temperature, salinity, dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and its isotopic composition d13CDIC, total alkalinity (At), inorganic nutrients and water stable isotopes (d18O and dD) collected mostly from ships of opportunity since 1993 along transects between Iceland and Newfoundland. The data have been validated, qualified, and their accuracy and the overall characteristics of the data set are presented in a paper (Reverdin et al., 2018, submitted to ESSD). The csv file provides a listing of the data with one line for each collection date. This includes collection date, position, temperature, salinity, and the measured, validated and in some cases adjusted variables, as well as a quality code following WOCE/GLODAP format. For water isotopes, a code is also provided indicating the method of measurement used. Format and units are described in the top 56 lines of the files, and the data listing starts on line 61. An additional text-file provides a normalized average seasonal cycle of the 10 variables measured in 5 boxes between the vicinity of Newfoundland to the south-west of Iceland (corresponding to the figure 3 of the paper Reverdin et al in the References). Format and information is provided in the top 25 lines and the gridded seasonal cyle data start at line 26.
