The term high resolution (bottle, CTD, XBT data) is used to mean data that are sampled usually at 1 or 2 m resolution. Low resolution data are those profiles that have been reduced by some process and normally are transmitted in real-time (BATHYs - temperature vs depth and TESACs - temperature, salinity vs depth).
