PHYTOPLANKTON - WET WEIGHT and Other Data from WEATHERBIRD and Other Platforms From NW Atlantic (limit-40 W) and Others from 19881020 to 19910913 (NODC Accession 9300165)

The Nansen bottle/ primary productivity/ pigment, sediment trap; and Conductivity, Temperature and Depth (CTD) data were collected in North Atlantic Ocean, NW Atlantic (limit-40 W) as part of Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS) project. Data was collected from Ships CAPE HATTERAS and WEATHERBIRD. The data was collected over a period spanning from October 20, 1988 and September 13, 1991. 13 files containing Sediment trap data (368 records); Primary Productivity Data (268 records); Bottle data (from 16 stations and 1,364 records); CTD data (95 stations and 52,635 records); and Pigment data (693 records) was submitted by Dr. Anthony H. Knapp, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA. Data has been processed and is available in F022-CTD-Hi Resolution file format of NODC.

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 BATS data primarily from Year 3, with additional data included from BATS years 1 and 2: 1) pigment data (chlorophylls a and b, peridinin, fucoxanthin, lutein, carotene, and others) collected during BATS Year 2 (These are the same data filed under NODC Accession number 9200088.) 2) Nutrient data (total carbon dioxide, nitrate+nitrite, silicate, and phosphate in umole/kg) collected as part of BATS Year 3 (Cruises 25 - 36, October 1990 - September 1991). CTD and particulate organic carbon and nitrogen (in ug/kg) and bacteria counts were also provided with these data. 3) Primary productivity data for BATS Years 1-3, Cruises 1-36.

The trap array had MULTITRAPS at 150, 200, 300 and 400 meters. The array was allowed to drift for a 72-hour period (drift was considerable, up to 100 km). Total percentages of nitrogen, total organic carbon, and total carbon were utilized to calculate particulate flux in mg/m2/d. Data were collected in the immediate area of the nominal station location at 31 degrees 50'N, 64 degrees 10'W.

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.
