OMG Level 2 Airborne eXpendable Bathy Thermograph (AXBT) Profiles

This dataset contains Level 2 in situ temperature measurements from the Airborne eXpendable Bathy Thermograph (AXBT) Profiles probes. It provides science quality temperature measurements within the water column. The AXBTs were jettisoned from a plane to collect temperature readings around Greenland, where a ship would have had difficulties maneuvering. The AXBTs are part of the Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) project. The goal of the project is to find out what contributions the ocean has on Greenland's melting glaciers.
