Hydrographic Office: Bathythermograph observations (Washington, D.C.: Published by the U.S. Navy Hydrographic Office under the authority of the Secretary of the Navy, ) (page images at HathiTrust) United States. porting weather observations, are now beginning to make observations of water temperatures below the sea surface to depths of m (2, ft). Such ob- servations from freighters, tankers, transports, and fishing vessels are made possible by the relatively new expendable bathythermograph, commonly called the "XBT.

Nagata (, ) studied temperature inversions in the seas adjacent to Japan using bathythermograph (BT) observations and found that many of the temperature inversions occur in the mixed water region between the Oyashio and Kuroshio fronts. So the existence of inversions in the region, where cold Oyashio meets warm Kuroshio, is quite possible . Mechanical Bathythermograph Observation System (From ) Quickly and accurately mapping the temperature variation of the upper ocean became a military priority in the lead‐up to World War II for the accurate interpretation of sonar readings to locate submarines and their potential hiding places. The CNMOC /2 Bathythermograph Log contains a foldout cover sheet with complete instructions for completing the log and encoding the observation in the proper International Code, which is WMO Code FM X BATHY. The bathythermograph, or BT, also known as the Mechanical Bathythermograph, or MBT; is a small torpedo-shaped device that holds a temperature sensor and a transducer to detect changes in water temperature versus depth down to a depth of approximately meters ( feet). Lowered by a small winch on the ship into the water, the BT records pressure and temperature .

Data set contents observations of the water temperature at the depth. The data set is organized by 10 squares. Data from cruises and stations are available on CD-ROM. Data on CD - ROM are grouped by regions and by months. Get this from a library!
