Temperature, salinity and and pigment data from CTD and bottle samples from the Bermuda Time Series (BATS/JGOFS) study area, Oct 1988 - Sep 1990 (NODC Accession 9200088)

The Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) is an international and multi- disciplinary study with a primary objective of understanding global oceanic carbon and nutrient cycles. The National Science Foundation has funded two time-series stations as part of JGOFS, one in Hawaii (HOTS) and a second in Bermuda, the Bermuda Atlantic Time-series study (BATS). BATS was funded under NSF Grant # OCE-8801089.

This data set is comprised of bottle pigment data (chlorophylls a and b, peridinin, fucoxanthin, lutein, carotene, and others) and nutrient data (total carbon dioxide, nitrate+nitrite, silicate, and phosphate in umole/kg) collected as part of BATS Year One (Cruises 1-12, October 1988-September 1989) and BATS Year Two (Cruises 13-24, October 1989-September 1990. The cruises were conducted using ship WEATHERBIRD. CTD and particulate organic carbon and nitrogen (in ug/kg) and bacteria counts were also provided with these data. Data were collected in the immediate area of the nominal station location at 31 degrees 50'N, 64 degrees 10'W. The core measurements require 5 casts per cruise, utilizing a SeaBird CTD mounted on a General Oceanics rosette equipped with 121 #12 Niskin bottles.

Originators data was submitted by Mr. George Heimerdinger, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA. The data have been processed and are available in C100 Ocean Station Data as well as F022-CTD Hi Resolution data format of NODC.

There are 3 types of files in this accession: .bot files indicate bottle data, .ctd files indicate CTD data, .pig files indicate pigment files. Data were collected from several ships during many cruises to the BATS site. File contents are 'self documenting'.

In this accession, NCEI has archived multiple versions of these data. The latest (and best) version of these data has the largest version number.
