This data set shows the location where a CTD (Conductivity -Temperature - Depth) device was used. CTD were determined while in the Caribbean Sea. The point location attributes are longitude, latitude, and date of placement in the water; this information was acquired during the U.S. Geological Survey Science Cruise 03008 in collaboration with National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Research Cruise RB0303 from 18 February to 7 March 2003, Leg II of III. (Leg I and III: 20020924 to 20020930 and 20030828 to 20030904, respectively).
To derive sound velocity information used for sonar mapping calibration and to determine some water characteristics.
