Hydrographic and chemical water parameters collected by CTD and other instruments from the Pelican and the Tommy Munro in coastal waters of Louisiana from 1994-07-24 to 1997-07-29 (NCEI Accession 0164298)

browse graphicPreview graphic
Hydrographic and chemical data were collected for a week in late July between 1994-1997 in order to survey the coastal hypoxia on Louisiana continental shelf. Nutrient, pigment, suspended sediment and station information data were also acquired. Data files provided in Microsoft Access format, from which NCEI provides a redundant copy in text format.
