Labrador Sea Bottle Data

These are bottle data from the Erika Dan cruise of 1962. The stations extend across the mouth of the Labrador Sea from Canada to Greenland. Because the section encloses a body of water, this data set can be used in a box inverse where one can enforce the conservation of such quantities as mass, heat, and salt to infer a reference velocity. The data is stored in a netCDF file:

The data are from each station in turn from surface to bottom. The pressure, temperature, salinity, and oxygen are recorded for each bottle. In addition, the latitude, longitude, bottom depth, and distance along section are given for each station. The netCDF file should be self-explanatory.
