Oceanographic physical and chemical profile data from bottle and CTD casts collected aboard the R/V Hermano Ginés in Southeastern Caribbean Sea from 2014-04-11 to 2015-07-29 (NCEI Accession 0139312)

Since November 1995, the CARIACO Ocean Time Series project has been studying the relationship between surface primary production (carbon fixation rates by photosynthesis of planktonic algae), regional hydrography, physical forcing variables (such as the wind), and the settling flux of particulate organic carbon in the Cariaco Basin. This tectonic depression, located on the continental shelf of Venezuela, shows marked seasonal and interannual variation in hydrography and primary production induced in part by the regular migration of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). This data set is part of the core variables collected monthly at the time-series station.
