Description 
Summary

With the commissioning of the 65m vessel (RV Celtic Explorer) in 2003 the Marine Institute is (on behalf of Ireland) expanding its operational capacity in oceanographic research. This spatial dataset provides a high quality archive of spatially & temporally located measurements describing the physical oceanography of the region, allowing a long term perspective of baselines & the associated inter-annual perturbations to be established. Data are separated into two types. 1. The Hull instrumentation data stream is monitored during passage to collect information regarding the ships location (& time).
