Temperature, salinity and currents data from CTD, ADCP and other instruments on the R/V F.G. Walton Smith in the Florida and Loop Currents, May 2007 to July 2008 (NODC Accession 0066847)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Oceanographic data were collected from a variety of sources during three cruises aboard the R/V Walton Smith (WS0714, cruise 1: May 29-June 14, 2007; WS0720, cruise 2: July 30-August 13,2007; WS0809, cruise 3: June 17-July 2, 2008). During each cruise the team sampled ichthyoplankton at approximately 100 stations throughout and upstream of the Straits of Florida (SOF). Throughout the entirety of the cruises the team collected data using a shipboard RD Instruments Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) with a 75 kHz system that measured deeper currents (16-208 m in 8 m depth bins). At a subset of the sampling stations, the team deployed a SeaBird conductivity-temperature-depth profiler (CTD) system with fluorometer and dissolved oxygen on a 12 bottle rosette.
