FK210922 Heatflow
Heat flow data from the Pescadero Basin, Gulf of California (2021, ROV SuBastian, FK210922)
This data set consists of thermal gradients and thermal conductivity to compute the heat flow in Pescadero Basin, Gulf of California. The data have been processed to convert from resistance to temperature using calibrations for each thermistor. Heat flow was estimated by combining the thermal gradient and thermal conductivity using the Bullard method. The data set was collected using a custom 1-m long ROV heat flow probe from Andrew Fisher, UC Santa Cruz. The heat flow probe was deployed on ROV SuBastian dives S0463-S0481 during Falkor cruise FK210922, operated by Schmidt Ocean Institute. Each deployment of the heat flow probe lasted approximately 15 minutes. The data file is in tab-separated ASCII text format with column headers and units. Funding was provided through awards from Schmidt Ocean Institute and internal funding from MBARI, CICESE, UABC, and CALTECH.
