The Ocean Archive System searches our original datasets as they were submitted to us, not individual points or profiles. If you want to search and retrieve ocean profiles in a common format, or objectively analyzed fields, your better option may be to use one of our project applications. See: Access Data

Title:Temperature, salinity, topsounder, and bottom sounding data from onboard sonar and XCTD casts from the Arctic Ocean from submarines in support of the Scientific Ice Expeditions from 01 January 1993 to 4 June 2001 (NODC Accession 0000568)
Abstract:XCTD and sonar data were collected from submarines in the Arctic Ocean. Data were collected in support of the Scientific Ice Expeditions from 01 January 1993 to 4 June 2001. XCTD parameters include profiles of temperature, salinity, sound velocity, and density. Topsounder data include ice draft measurements made using a high frequency upward-looking, narrow-beam sonar. Bottom soundings were made using a high-frequency, narrow beam sonar.
