The HOT project is committed to providing free and open access to its
data set in a timely manner, and the use of these data is encouraged.
We are now posting our calibrated CTD temperatures and salinities, bottle
salinities and nominally calibrated CTD dissolved oxygens within approximately
one month of each cruise; and calibrated CTD dissolved oxygens and bottle
oxygen data within approximately two months of each cruise.
We require that users fill out a brief one-time registration form before acquiring these preliminary datasets. Registration is not required to access finalized data, but it would be appreciated.
The continuous flow of these data depends on funding, and that depends in part on the credits that we get from the data users. If you use these data in your project, please contact Prof. Roger Lukas to avoid possible duplication of efforts. Please consider the benefits of possible scientific collaborations in the analysis of these data. If you use our data in your project, we would appreciate your acknowledgement of the HOT project. The following should be cited in publications: "This publication is based upon Hawaii Ocean Time-series observations supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation under Grant OCE-0926766" A preprint and reprint of the publications utilizing HOT data would be appreciated.
