This dataset contains ADCP, CTD, water and sediment chemistry, and other underway sensor data collected aboard R/V Endeavor cruise EN505 in the Gulf of Mexico from 2012-04-11 to 2012-04-24. The CTD profiles were done at 4 locations using Sea-Bird SBE 911plus from 2012-04-11 to 2012-04-14 and include seawater conductivity, temperature, pressure, salinity, density, oxygen concentration, sound velocity, dissolved oxygen, beam attenuation, light transmission, fluorescence, surface irradiance, and depth parameters. The current velocity data was measured by a hull-mounted mounted Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) and other underway sensor data was measured with a Sea-Bird SBE 21 (tsg), Sea-Bird SBE 45 (tsg) and underway sensors/navigational instruments. All data records include sampling time (UTC), position (Latitude, Longitude) and water depth. In addition, the dataset also includes the water column and sediment chemistry data and the measurements include the concentration of dissolved nutrients, dissolved gases, total particulate nitrogen (TPN), total particulate carbon (TPN), particulate organic carbon (POC), and particulate inorganic carbon acquired from 8 CTD casts and 6 multiple corer drops. The objective of this cruise was to study the impact of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) blowout on the water column and benthic communities of the Gulf of Mexico and compare these impacts to naturally occurring oil and gas seeps. These data are also available at Rolling Deck to Repository (R2R) under cruise DOI: 10.7284/902570.
