Temperature, salinity and other parameters from CTDs from NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown during the 2016 El Nino Rapid Response (ENRR) campaign (NCEI Accession 0162434)

browse graphicPreview graphic
During the NOAA El Nino Rapid Response (ENRR) field campaign, 33 CTD's were released from NOAA Ship Ronald H. Brown ship over the period Feb 22-Mar 11 2016. The ship was in the eastern tropical Pacific ocean and stayed near the equator. Measurements included temperature, depth, pressure, salinity, conductivity, and sound velocity. Maximum depth was approximately 3000m for some sondes. Data are in .cnv files.
