NBP0901 Conductivity, Fluorescence, Oxygen, Pressure, Radiation:Visible, Salinity, Temperature, Turbidity
Calibrated Hydrographic Data from the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica acquired with a CTD during the Nathaniel B. Palmer expedition NBP0901 (2009)
This data set was acquired with a Sea-Bird SBE-911 CTD during Nathaniel B. Palmer expedition NBP0901 conducted in 2009 (Chief Scientist: Dr. Stan Jacobs). These data files are of SEASOFT format and include Salinity, Visible Radiation, Turbidity, Oxygen, Fluorescence, Conductivity, Pressure, and Temperature data and were processed after data collection. Data were acquired as part of the project(s): Collaborative International Research: Amundsen Sea Influence on West Antarctic Ice Sheet Stability and Sea Level Rise, Shedding dynamic light on iron limitation: The interplay of iron limitation and dynamic irradiance conditions in governing the phytoplankton distribution in the Ross Sea, and Collaborative Research: Sampling the ocean - sea ice interaction in the Pacific center of the Antarctic Dipole, and funding was provided by NSF grant(s): OPP06-32282.
