Description 
Summary

The CTD databank comprises approximately 1500 profiles of conductivity-temperature-depth data, collected from 1974 onwards. These data have been collected on about 30 research cruises. About half of the profiles are from the North Sea, with the remainder split fairly evenly between the Irish Sea/North Channel and the Celtic Sea. Data from the NERC North Sea Project are not included in this data set.
