CTD and water current data collected from R/V Brooks McCall southeast of the Mississippi River Delta in Gulf of Mexico for the GISR:G02 cruise from 2012-07-27 to 2012-08-09 (NCEI Accession 0130372)

A chemical tracer was released at approximately 1100m depth east of the Mississippi Canyon. Later, CTD data and water samples were collected to measure tracer concentrations to determine initial transport and dispersion of the tracer. RAFOS floats were released to track the water movement.
