Temperature and salinity data from moored seacat sensors of the Multi-disciplinary Ocean Sensors for Environmental Analyses and Networks (MOSEAN) project 2004-2007 (NCEI Accession 0115703)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Temperature and salinity data were collected by seacat sensors from seven deployments within 2004-2007 on the HALE-ALOHA mooring, a location about 100 km north of Oahu, Hawaii, USA. The HALE-ALOHA mooring supports the Hawaii Ocean Time-series program. The seacat sensors were one of many instruments deployed for the Multi-disciplinary Ocean Sensors for Environmental Analyses and Networks (MOSEAN) project, lead by the Ocean Physics Laboratory (OPL) of the University of California at Santa Barbara. The MOSEAN project is funded by the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP). The main goal of MOSEAN is to develop and test relatively small, lightweight optical and chemical sensors for autonomous deployment. Each deployment lasted around six months. The Seabird Electronics SEACAT 16 provided 5-minute sampling and were mounted at various depths ranging from 10 to 200 m. Each deployment had one or two depths and depth levels varied among deployments. There were no available data for deployment 4. The data were quality controlled by the OPL. ADCP currents for select deployments are provided in a separate NODC accession.

Purpose The HALE-ALOHA mooring captures a broad dynamic range of oceanic variability (minutes to years), enabling new insights into high frequency and episodic phenomena while also providing long-term (climate-scale) and contextual, complementary information for other observations at the adjacent Hawaii Ocean Time-series site, for evaluation of undersampling/aliasing effects, and for developing and testing models. Some of the highlight results to date include studies of passages of Rossby waves, cold-core eddies and other mesoscale features have been used to estimate their roles in affecting new production, biogeochemical cycling, and carbon flux to the deep ocean.
