Processing Steps
  • Data Type: TEMPERATURE - WATER [WATER TEMPERATURE] (measured); Units: degrees C; Observation Type: in situ; Sampling Instrument: RBR Concerto CTD; Sampling and Analyzing Method: Profile averaged into 2 m bins from the downcast. RBR was strapped to a rosette.; Data Quality Information: temperature range 0.127:7.940.
  • Data Type: SALINITY (calculated); Units: psu; Observation Type: in situ; Sampling Instrument: RBR Concerto CTD; Sampling and Analyzing Method: Profile averaged into 2 m bins from the downcast. RBR CTD was strapped to a rosette. (1) The conductivity was shifted by 3 scans to align with the temperature and pressure measurements. (2) A pressure-dependent correction was applied to the conductivity: correction(p) = -1.4984e-05 - 0.0018*p (raw profile too salty at depth). The correction was derived by comparing more than 20 profiles from the RBR to profiles from a calibrated SBE 19plus CTD.; Data Quality Information: salinity range: 29.22:34.44 psu.
