Short summary
This paper brings together over 10 million previously unpublished, quality-controlled seawater temperature measurements from 130 years of government-funded marine science investigations in the United Kingdom (UK). The records focus around the UK but also extend from Greenland to the Bay of Biscay. Making the data open and accessible provides valuable information to assess changing hydrological conditions. The data are now all publicly available at https://www.cefas.co.uk/cefas-data-hub/.
