This data set of CTD and/or STD profiles at stations on the Aberdeen - Hantsholm hydrographic section in the North Sea has been collected on cruises for the AlterEco project undertaken by Marine Scotland. After initial quality assurance by the data originator, the individual CTD/STD profiles at stations on the section have been grouped together to form sections at specific time intervals. Where stations were skipped or sections incomplete, a fill value has been applied.
