Reducing Biases in XBT Measurements by Including Discrete Information from Pressure Switches
Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology
Biases in the depth estimation of expendable bathythermograph (XBT) measurements cause considerable errors in oceanic estimates of climate variables. Efforts are currently underway to improve XBT probes by including pressure switches. Information from these pressure measurements can be used to minimize errors in the XBT depth estimation. This paper presents a simple method to correct the XBT depth biases using a number of discrete pressure measurements. A blend of controlled simulations of XBTdoi:10.1175/jtech-d-12-00126.1 fatcat:nrzcd3wxnvg75j3o4zz2nov6rq
