Dataset identification

Title of datasetUnderway thermosalinograph data from cruise DEKOSIM Black Sea July 2019
Narrative summary of datasetThe dataset contains pairs of files with thermosalinograph data acquiured underway during the cruise. The first file in a pair named "tsgXX", where XX is sequentional number, contains raw output of thermosalinograph. Each record in the file contains: global time (seconds from 01/01/1970), temperature value, and salinity value. The second file in a pair named "gpsXX" contains the respective GPS data: global time (seconds from 01/01/1970) and GPS GPGGA sentence in each record. The thermosalinograph model: SBE 45 MicroTSG of Sea-Bird Electronics.
Summary of processing methodologySensors are fully calibrated by manufacturer.
