I (Jim Manning) suggest that investigators use Dick Payne's version of OCEANUS alongtrack data. The raw data I post here was processed primarily while underway and has obvious problems. There are unrealistic (sometimes negative) temperature and eratic salinity. Winds are of especially poor quality as noted below.

I have been delayed in getting this data on-line because I am not happy with my "corrected" wind (with ships motion removed) and, I am still not comfortable with posting the corrected wind so I have added a comment on the fact that it is questionable. I have notified the OCEANUS SSSG people about this problem. In the meantime I suggest that any one interested in wind for these periods use the NOAA buoy winds or Dick Paynes OCEANUS alongtrack data instead.
