Laser In-Situ Scattering and Transmissometer (LISST) and Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) measurements and supporting data collected in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill Incident from multiple vessels in the Gulf of Mexico from 21/04/2010 to 24/08/2010 (NODC Accession 0086284)

At the request of the United States (U.S.) government and BP, research scientists and technicians from the Centre for Offshore Oil Gas and Energy Research (COOGER), Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) conducted at-sea monitoring operations with other scientific experts on board vessels R/V Brooks McCall and R/V Ocean Veritas to assist in a comprehensive environmental monitoring program in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Throughout the period from May 8 to August 24th the DFO COOGER team maintained a continuous monitoring program that recovered a total of 3197 unique water samples from 404 stations at depths down to 2000m for analysis of dispersant effectiveness by characterizing oil droplet size and UV-fluorescence. This collection of data is organized into nine database tables which include all data used by COOGER to conduct analyses. These data include LISST data for in situ deployments; discrete LISST data collected aboard R/V Brooks McCall and R/V Ocean Veritas; UV Fluorescence data collected aboard the R/V Brooks McCall and R/V Ocean Veritas; Hydrocarbon chemistry data; CTD trace data; CTD trace data matched to Niskin bottles; R/V Brooks McCall and R/V Ocean Veritas sampling station data (date, depth, location, and distance from wellhead); and Wellhead data including daily oil flow and recovery, and dispersant application data.

Supplemental Information
The database contains 9 tables which include: (1) Chem_Data – Hydrocarbon chemistry data. All units converted to µg/l; (2) CTD – Complete CTD trace data; (3) CTD_Bottle – CTD trace data matched to Niskin bottles based on date, time, and depth; (4) LISST_InSitu – LISST data for in situ deployments May 10, 11, 15, and 17, 2010; (5) LISST_R/V_Brooks_McCall – Discrete LISST data collected aboard R/V Brooks McCall; (6) LISST_R/V_Ocean_Veritas – Discrete LISST data collected aboard R/V Ocean Veritas; (7) Station_SpatialData – Date, depth, location, and distance from wellhead (calculated using Arc GIS 9.3) data for each R/V Brooks McCall and R/V Ocean Veritas sampling station; (8) UV_Fluorescence – UV Fluorescence data collected aboard the R/V Brooks McCall and R/V Ocean Veritas. Raw fluorescence units; and (9) Wellhead_Daily - Daily oil flow and recovery, and dispersant application data. Column names for LISST data tables are FileName, ScanNo, 1:32, LaserTransSensor, BattVolt, AuxIn1, LaserRefSensor, Pressure, TempDegC, DayHour, and MinSec.

Purpose In direct support of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) directives to monitor the efficacy of subsurface oil dispersant injection and the fate and transport of dispersed oil as part a of the larger coordinated spill response operations, COOGER’s primary operational objectives were to: (1) Find and characterize dispersed oil by LISST particle size analysis and fluorescence analysis; (2)Perform ongoing sampling and analysis to track the subsurface oil plume emanating from the blown-out Deepwater Horizon wellhead; and (3) Verify plume modelling outputs provided by NOAA, SINTEF, and others.
