Polar Sea 10-01 CTD and Nutrient Data



This Conductivity Temperature Depth (CTD) data set, consisting of 85 casts, was collected during a multi-disciplinary Bering Sea cruise on US Coast Guard Cutter Polar Sea (psea1001, March 7 - April 1, 2010). 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 this cruise were managed by personnel from NOAA/PMEL in the EcoFOCI program, with technical expertise from SCRIPPS, and deployment assistance from Polar Sea 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"; in text data files, and as 1.0e-35 in NetCDF files.

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