LIGHT TRANSMISSION and Other Data from ATLANTIS II and Other Platforms From NE Atlantic (limit-40 W) from 19890418 to 19890707 (NODC Accession 9200160)

These data are optical measurements of irradiance and fluorescence collected during continuous long track surface measurements made on the Endeavor 168 Cruise between Reyjavik, Iceland and a 60n station. Data parameters include: position, incident par (400-700 nm) irradiance in umole/sec/m2, and MLML incubator scalar par (400-700 nm) irradiance in umole/sec/m2. Calculated rescale flourescence (680 nm) values were also included; the relative units are equal to pigment amounts measured in mg/m3. These data were collected as part of the Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS)/ North Atlantic Bloom Experiment (NABE) by Moss Landing Marine Laboratory, California.

The Endeavor 168 data are contained two files: E198MLML.hor and E198sail.hor. A readme.txt file (MLML Tech Pub 90-1) overviews the data parameters and methodology. This research was funded by NSF grant OCE-8813568, and The Office of Naval Research grant # N-000-14-84-C-0619.

These data are calculated optical measurements of fluorescence collected during continuous long track surface measurements made on the JGOFS Atlantis II Cruise 119.4 between the Azores and Iceland. Data parameters include: position, salinity, incident par (400-700) irradiance in umole/sec/m2, MLML incubator par scalar irradiance in umole/sec/m2, and rescaled flourescence (685 nm) mg/m3. "Rescaled flourescence" units are numerically equivalent to chlorophyll a concentrations in ug/liter.

The Atlantis II data are contained two files: A1194.hor and A1195.hor. a readme.txt file (MLML Tech Pub 90-1) overviews the data parameters and methodology. This research was funded by NSF grant OCE-8813568, and the Office of Naval Research Grant # N-000-14-84-C-0619.

Note: Metadata for this accession were extracted from a legacy database
maintained by the U.S. National Oceanographic Data Center (NODC). The
design of the database did not exactly reflect the FGDC Content
Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM).

Principal Investigator (PI) and organization contact information
accurately represents all available information from the legacy database
at the time that this description was created. However, proper
attribution of a PI to a specific institution or the role (submitting or
collecting) taken by an institution may not be correct due to inexact
mapping between fields in the legacy database and the CSDGM. Due to this
uncertainty, the contact information was initially recorded in the
Supplemental Information element of the CSDGM description.

To develop more accurate metadata, the NODC reviews metadata for all
accessions on an ongoing basis.
