Fall 2015 Survey (PTS02, REson7125)

The cruise investigated how complex fine-scale structure and processes in coastal waters dominated by pulsed-river plumes control the exposure, impacts, and ecosystem recovery from offshore spills like the Deepwater Horizon release of 2010. Data were collected along three transects in the northern Gulf of Mexico in water depths from 10 metres to 60 metres using the Reson 7125 multibeam sonar and a In Situ Ichtyoplankton Imaging System (ISIIS). Stations along the corridor completed CTD casts, trace metal testing, water chemistry, FlowCam analysis, radio-isotopes testing, and productivity experiments.

Search Data
Distribution Formats
  • Reson 7k file format from Reson 7x series instruments (Version: 1)
    • File Specification: The Reson 7k file contains records consisting of a data record frame, a record type header, an optional record data section, and an optional data section for extra information. The Record Data section is considered optional because some remote controls commands consist only of the RTH.

    Purpose CONCORDE is the CONsortium for oil spill exposure pathways in COastal River-Dominated Ecosystems (CONCORDE). It is one of 12 research consortia funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) to conduct scientific studies of the impacts of oil, dispersed oil and dispersant on the Gulf’s ecosystem and public health during 2015-17.
