Marine Geoscience Data System
Arctic_MBARI Conductivity, Pressure, Salinity, Temperature, Velocity:Sound
Processed CTD data acquired near-bottom in 2017 from the continental slope of the Canadian Beaufort Sea with MBARI mapping AUV on mission 20170910m1
This processed CTD data set was collected with a SeaBird SBE-49 FastCat system on MBARI Mapping AUV mission 20170910m1 in 2017. The data file is in ASCII format and contains processed conductivity, temperature, pressure, salinity, sound velocity and potential temperature data. The AUV survey mission was conducted during the 2017 KOPRI R/V Araon cruise ARA08C in the Beaufort Sea (Cruise Chief Scientist - Young Keun Jin, KOPRI; project PI - Charlie Paull and investigators: David Caress and Eve Lundsten, MBARI). Data were acquired as part of a collaborative research project between MBARI, KOPRI, the Geological Survey of Canada, and Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada to understand slope stability. Funding for the AUV mapping was provided from the David and Lucile Packard Foundation.
