NRDA-processed CTD data from NOAA Ship GORDON GUNTER in the Gulf of Mexico, Cruise 1004 Leg 2, collected from 2010-09-16 to 2010-09-28, associated with the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill event (NCEI Accession 0128049)

Initial Conductivity Temperature and Depth (CTD) measurements were collected aboard NOAA Ship Gordon Gunter to determine water column stratification or other physical oceanographic parameters that will help determine depth of samples collected and further validate the model. The final product is a netCDF file (or series of netCTD files) containing every CTD cast that has been processed and quality checked. Note this is provisional data.

Purpose CTD data collected provides several crucial functions; in addition to giving background physical oceanographic about the Gulf of Mexico, supplementary instrumentation was used to highlight the existence of oil at depth, quantify the amount of oxygen, and measure turbidity or pH on several cruises. CTD information can be used on its own, as model input/validation, or help inform where future cruises may need to investigate further.
