HLY-08-02 CTD and Nutrient Data


This Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) data set, consisting of 236 casts, was collected during a multi-disciplinary Bering Sea ice cruise on the US Coast Guard Cutter Healy (HL0802, March 29 - May 6, 2008). The cruise was funded by NSF for the Bering Sea Ecosystem Study-Bering Sea Integrated Ecosystem Research Program (BEST-BSIERP), and supported by numerous agencies and institutions. BEST-BSIERP together are the Bering Sea project. The CTD operations on the cruise were managed by personnel from NOAA/PMEL in the Eco FOCI program, with technical expertise from SCRIPPS, and deployment assistance from Healy personnel. Water samples from casts were collected by various parties relative to their research needs. Profile data from CTD instruments were processed at NOAA/PMEL/EcoFOCI using standard techniques. Data from bottle samples include phosphate, silicate, nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, and chlorophyll. Data files are an array on a 1-meter grid and combine both averaged CTD profile data, and bottle samples where depths with no data are listed as "-1E+10".

Data are available in two formats: netCDF, and Ocean Data View ASCII files.
