This page contains Airborne Expendable Bathythermograph (AXBT) data. An AXBT is an expendable instrument that is dropped from an aircraft. Once an AXBT is in the water it drops a sensor deep into the water column measuring water temperature at various depths.

The data on this page is organized by day. The data for a particular day could come from anywhere in the basin. Only NOAA AXBT data appears here in real time. While most data here is also available in mission folders, data that could not be associated with a particular mission, or even data from missions that may have been deleted, will also appear here.
