Description 
Summary

The data set contains hourly cruise-after-cruise deep sea sampler (bathometer) and related meteorological, hydrological, hydrochemical, chemical pollution observations made at landlocked and shelf seas of the USSR in the framework of various research projects Seas, Shelf and other. The data set is systematized by groups of seas: the north group - the Baltic Sea, the White Sea, the Barents Sea, the Arctic Seas; the south group - the Sea of Azov, the Aral Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea; the Far East group - the Bering Sea, the Sea of Okhotsk, the Sea of Japan. Each cruise has its specific period of observations within the time period indicated. The data set is updated on a regular basis. The data set is included into the information base of the Oceanography - Seas data bank. The initial media is a perforated tape. Several Directorates of the Hydrometeorological Service were involved in data perforation.
